What do we do?

During a typical visit of 4 days the host village organizes social, educational and cultural activities.  Examples are, visits to the Senate and The Hotel D Vile in Paris and Badminton House and Warwick Castle in England.  Other shared activities have included river trips, a steam train ride, pub meals and visits to local places of interest.  Social evenings are very popular on both sides of the channel and have included barn dances with music by our local folk group Hobgoblin and American suppers where local bands have provided the entertainment.  Anniversaries and important events are celebrated with a formal reception and meal.

Members meet monthly over a glass of wine to discuss future events, both fund raising and social.  Recent events have included safari suppers, rambles, picnics, tenpin bowling, skittles, cheese and wine evenings and quizzes.  In addition, the association organises a Christmas meal for all its members.  As an association we aim to contribute to the life of the village and have done this by supporting Revel and other village events.

Since the first tentative visit in 1987 many firm and long-standing friendships have been formed.  Once there has been a reciprocal family visit a new family is hosted the following year.  As a result many long standing friendships have been made and private visits arranged.

New members are always welcome.  If you are interested in joining our enthusiastic and successful association please contact our membership secretary.  It is not necessary to speak French in order to participate in and enjoy the twinning experience!!
