An historic friendship agreement between Thunder Bay, Canada and the London Borough Bromley has been signed today.

The Worshipful Mayor of Bromley, Councillor Kim Botting FRSA, and the Mayor of Thunder Bay, Councillor Kristen Oliver, signed the agreement marking more than 100 years of friendship which started during World War I and commemorates the sacrifice Canadian soldiers made for freedom. Many are buried in Canadian Corner at All Saints’ Church in Orpington, and in recognition of their heritage, the headstones face west towards Canada.
