Following the British Fortnight in Ingelheim the Stevenage-Ingelheim Committee call a well attended public meeting at the Town Hall. A Stevenage-Ingelheim Association is formed and a motion calling on Stevenage Urban District Council in the name of the people of Stevenage to enter into an official link with Ingelheim is passed unanimously.
Stevenage Urban District Council accepts the Association’s call and an official link is signed in Ingelheim.
The link with Autun was first promoted between the Rotary Club of Stevenage and Autun.
The three-way link between the councils of Stevenage, Ingelheim and Autun was formalised at a ceremony in Ingelheim. So The Stevenage-Ingelheim Association became The Stevenage-Ingelheim-Autun Association.
