CELEBRATING THE 70TH ANNIVERSARY ROSSENDALE & BOCHOLT PARTNERSHIP A German city of 74k inhabitants near the dutch border, Bocholts twinning roots with Rossendale go back to 1952 when the first youth visit took place after the second world war from Alder Grange. Since then, friendships have grown between sportsmen, musicians & school children alike; and those generally interested in travel, culture, and friendship as members of the Friends of Bocholt who exchange visits each year.
