Twyford Twinning Association


This is one of the half-yearly meetings of the Twyford Twinning Association executive committee that is open to members of the public. The executive meets every two months in order to keep various joint initiatives moving forward.

Twyford signed a twinning agreement in March 2018 with the town of Cuincy in northern France. The twinning relationship enables regular cultural and sporting exchanges between clubs, societies and businesses with common interests. The role of the twinning association is one of coordinating, facilitating, supporting and communicating the activities taking place between related groups in the two locations.

Cuincy is located close to Lens and Lille and has a population of around 7,000 residents - similar in size to Twyford. There is a British cemetery in Cuincy and others in the area. The armistice centenary was marked with reciprocal visits over the remembrance weekend in November 2018.

There are already subgroups representing various interests - education, drama, singing, football, table tennis, cycling to name a few.

Any additional individuals, clubs or businesses in Twyford that may be interested in forging links with their counterparts in Cuincy would be very welcome to join the half-yearly meetings of the twinning association.
