Cirencester has a long history of twinning links, but in recent years activity had slowed. We have been twinned with Itzehoe for many years, and strong friendships have been established with exchanges and trade links.
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 Cirencester 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.
We're working especially to forge links between schools and pupils in our twin communities!
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.
