About the Association

 

The Association's objectives are promoting links with Hurth, Les Ulis, Spijkenisse and Skawina through social and cultural visits and exchanges by individuals and groups.

Thetford Twinning Association is a voluntary group which consists of residents of Thetford and the surrounding area with the aim of promoting friendships with members of twin towns. Although the Association has links with the Town Council it is not funded by the Council. Members of the committee give up their free time to serve on an entirely voluntary basis and are not paid for their work or travel.

Members have guests from twin towns to stay in their homes at their own cost, in the knowledge that they will be hosted in the homes of people from our twin towns in return. Any travel costs or other expenses on visits to twin towns are paid for by members individually.

The Association encourages and will try to help with arranging traditional and e-mail communications between residents of the twin towns for people of all ages, in addition to helping find work and study placements for students.
