Blick von der ISS auf die Erde: Aus dieser Perspektive sind die Entfernungen zwischen den Ländern klein. Direkte Kommunikation ist dank Internet auch kein Problem mehr.

Diese Seite ist noch im Aufbau begriffen!

Kommunikation weltweit ist heute, zumindest im Berufsalltag, eine Selbstverständlichkeit. Auch unsere Städtepartnerschaft lebt von Verbindungen über Grenzen hinweg.

Hier finden Sie Internet-Links zu offiziellen Stellen sowie Vereinen und Freunden, die die Partnerschaft zwischen unseren beiden Städten unterstützen; des Weiteren Links von allgemeinem Interesse in unserem Kontext.

Beschreibungen sind in der jeweiligen Landessprache belassen.

Epping Town Council

Epping Town Council is the parish council with responsibility for the town of Epping, and it is this council that is officially twinned with Eppingen. Its base is at Epping Hall in St John’s Road. The council liaises with the two higher tiers of local government, Epping Forest District Council and Essex County Council, in matters relating to the town. In 2019 the council was awarded Quality Gold Status for best practice in local government. Their website has a wealth of information about the town and its history, as well as details of the council, local services and events. There is also an online version of the council’s quarterly print magazine Talk About Epping.

Rotarians

Eppingen does not have its own Rotary Club; Sinsheim, about 13 miles (20 km) away, is the nearest town which does. Rotary links were therefore forged with that town.

St John’s Church, Epping 

The Church of St John the Baptist is the Anglican parish church for the town. St John’s organises a Christmas Tree Festival in early December each year. It Includes musical performances, Christmas items for sale, and refreshments. Many local organisations participate, each decorating their own tree – the twinning association, of course, always chooses a German theme.
