WTTA Special Edition Newsletter No 7
established Town Twinning links, as indicated on the Town entry road
signs. Erftstadt is a little South-East of Cologne, Viry- Châtillon is
about 25 miles South of Paris, periferique exits Porte Maillot and
Wokingham Town Twinning Association develops, promotes, and continues these links with the Town Mayor as its Honorary President.
The Town Twinning Association works to arrange a) regular annual Group visits to and from our partners, and b) introductions between interested leisure clubs and societies. There have been dozens of these.
Our Social Committee also arranges trips for our own members to local sites of interest; this year's calendar is available.
2017 sees the celebration of 40 years of twinning with Erftstadt.
We have an on-going need for new Members to host incoming visits. Such hospitality is expected to be reciprocal - barring normal non-availability. A profile is submitted of everybody involved, including from our partner towns, to make a reasonable match in age, family, language ability, diet preference etc. to ease visitor acceptance in the home environment. This helps families to communicate.
As a non-member you could also host a French or German visitor this year . If you are interested please email visits ** or call 0118 978 3185.
As an existing member or new member you could join the committee and help in the organisation of the social events and visits or simply give us new ideas!! If you are interested email our secretary **
The WTTA has also organised various events aimed at promoting the twinning. If you feel you can help in any way in the organisation of these events please email information **. There is no age limit, kids are very welcome too!!
Town Twinning in Wokingham is enjoy by almost 100 current members. It offers the chance to share, compare and understand what life is today with people in France and Germany.
