Thetford Twinning Association
You are visitor number
Thetford Twinning Association was founded in 1992, and works with the town council to organise formal twinning with Spijkenisse in Holland, Les Ulis in France and Hürth in Germany. In April of 2005 a twinning agreement with Skawina in Poland was completed.
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.
The Association encourages and will try to help with arranging traditional and e-mail pen-pal communications between residents of the twin towns for people of all ages, in addition to helping find work and study placements for students.
A newsletter is published regularly throughout the year. The committee meets monthly and social and fund-raising events are held in most months of the year.
For more information or to find out about events please see the various pages of this website. If your question is not answered there please e-mail Thetford Twinning for more information.
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.
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 organises regular social events to raise funds towards joint costs when groups of visitors are received (ie the hire of a minibus or the expenses of an official function) for instance, barbecues, lunches, Christmas parties, etc. Members are charged for attendance and raffles are often included to raise more funds.
New members are always welcome.
