Twyford Twinning Association AGM
On 24 March 2018 Twyford signed a twinning agreement with Cuincy, a town in northern France.
Following an approach to Twyford Parish Council by the town hall / mayor of Cuincy in 2016, interested parties met regularly to work towards twinning with Cuincy in time to mark the centenary of the end of WW1 in November 2018.
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.
Both sides envisage a twinning relationship that should include regular cultural and sporting exchanges between clubs, societies and businesses with common interests, and foster the formation of friendships over the years.
The Twyford Twinning Association includes representatives of various interest groups and usually meets on the third Wednesday of each month at 7.30pm in the Twyford Centre in Polehampton Close (also known as the Age Concern day centre). Any additional individuals, clubs or businesses interested in getting involved would be very welcome to join the meetings, bringing in a wider representation from the local community. The role of the association is to coordinate, facilitate, support and communicate the activities taking place between related groups in the two locations.
Tonight's meeting, the first AGM, presents the perfect opportunity for members of the public to learn what has been achieved so far and discover what plans there are for the future.
