The Sister Cities Association of Mansfield in England
We are dedicated to forging links between other Mansfield’s in the world. We also work closely with Mansfield District Council who have a formal twinning relationship with Mansfield, Ohio, USA and Mansfield Rotary Club who are twinned with Mansfield Rotary Club in Mansfield, Massachusetts.
The Sister Cities Association has been in existence since 1989, and has close links with its namesakes all over the world. Over the years there have been many international contacts, both personal and business, and citizens of nearly all the Mansfield’s in the world have visited – or been visited by! – citizens of other Mansfield’s around the world. There are 40 places called Mansfield, or at least with Mansfield as part of their name. In reality there are actually 33 habitable cities, towns, villages, suburbs and hamlets which are formally named Mansfield. There are 7 other “places of interest” with Mansfield in the name.
