Rita D'Silva Griffiths (Language College Manager) at Judgemeadow Community College, received the Colin Grundy Trophy and £250 for her twinning work, from the executive committee of the City of Leicester European Twinning Association (CLETA) at their meeting in early September.

Mrs D'Silva Griffiths, who is also Marketing & Events Manager at Judgemeadow, has been a member of CLETA's Executive Committee for two years and was praised for "her interest in, contribution to and love of twinning".

Twenty years ago, in June 1996, Judgemeadow Community College was the first recipient of the Colin Grundy Trophy, which is named after a former Lord Mayor of Leicester.

Mrs D'Silva Griffiths said: "Our school is currently twinned with Krefeld and Strasbourg. Students experience real culture and language and get the opportunity to taste French and German food."
