Catching up with Western Springs Illinois!

Published: 04 June 2021

In the late 1950’s, Rugeley took part in a Global effort to strengthen international peace and understanding, and was twinned with the town of Western Springs in Cook County, Illinois – a suburb of Chicago.  Western Springs is of a comparable size to Rugeley.

We have invited the Town’s President – Alice Gallagher and their community to join us virtually for the demolition of our iconic Cooling Towers on Sunday, time difference allowing, to share this historic event with us.

If you would like to learn more about our twinned town, please go to their website.
