Welcome - Bienvenue

This year has been the celebration of 45 years of Twinning with a grand reception at the Park hotel to meet the councillors and French Twinning families of Landivisiau in total some 50 French visitors. Lots of fun including Morris dancing in the Pannier market, a lamb roast with murder mystery (who poisoned John Day?) and a wonderful banquet lunch at the Park hotel Barnstaple and not to be outdone fish and chips at Mr Chips on the quay.

A Description of Twinning.

The practise of Twinning took off in earnest after the second World War - a true post war spirit of reconciliation developed throughout Europe and those ties still hold true today. The ties enable families to explore different cultures, influences and commonality.

We exchange annual visits with our Twinning partners. During our visits we arrange hosting for our guests in Twinner's family homes and several trips, entertainments and social activities. We have a small committee who plan the exchange visits and give our guests a weekend to remember. Likewise our trips to France have always been a real treat, due to the warmth, welcome and hospitality of our French hosts.

DOES TWINNING WORK TODAY? Just ask the many people who have enjoyed the fun, activities and visits to France over the past 46 years, and be assured - YES IT DOES.
