CirenTwinning encourages Culture



The Objectives

Cirencester has a long history of twinning links, but in recent years activity had slowed. Under the leadership of a small, newly formed committee the Cirencester Twinning Association has begun to re-establish, and build strong links with our friendship towns once again.


There are many drivers of interest in twinning and the Association will offer different things to different members. But the overarching goal is to have an active link between Ciren and its partners Itzehoe, St Genis Laval and La Couronne.. This will include cultural visits abroad with reciprocal hostings and opportunities to share experiences amongst local people with an international interest. There are also possibilities such as hosting work experience placements, developing links between clubs and societies and language learning.


The newly reformed Cirencester Twinning Association is in the early days of its journey. New members are very much welcome to help the committee drive this initiative forward, and develop a thriving twin town relationship for the people of Cirencester.
