I met John when he was the Haddington Twinning President , between 1987 – 90 . He came to Aubigny in March 1989 , as related in the Press cuttings . At that time, I was Secretary of Aubigny Twinning [ ATA ] Soon after that the newly elected Mayor, Yves Fromion , said he would no longer be the A.T.A President. This is how I became the first A.T.A. elected President , in June 1989. John Stewart could not attend the Bicententary Celebrations in July 1989 but he and I jointly celebrated the 25th Anniversary of the twinning in Haddington . I have quite a lot of good memories and photographs of the events in Aubigny.
