So, what sort of person joins the Twinning Association?

We have adults whose children have already ‘flown the nest’ and are keen to make new friends in France, they often exchange with the same family every year. We also have younger people who want to learn more about the french way of life and improve their french speaking. Some people do not go on the exchange, but enjoy taking part in the many social events. Past events have included suppers, quiz evenings, petanque, barn dances, wine tastings and pub walks.


We have entered floats with a French theme in our village carnival and have won a number of prizes. More recently we have organised the Santa Sleigh run and raised money for children’s charities.
