Crewkerne & District Twinning Association is preparing to welcome their friends from the French towns of Igny and Bures Sur Yvette. A party of around 50 twinners will arrive in England on May 25th, when they will meet up with their Crewkerne friends at Hampton Court. Following a visit to the 15th Century medieval castle and tour of the spectacular gardens with its famous maze, the twinning party will make their way by coach to Crewkerne, staying for two days with local families.
Accommodation in the Crewkerne area is still needed for at least one family with a teenage child and couples in their late 50’s. Hosting a family is a great opportunity for local people to improve their French conversation and to help the French friends improve their understanding of the English language.
Anyone who would like to host a French couple or a family, is asked to please contact the chair of Crewkerne & District Twinning Association Cheryl Newman on tel 01460 75025.
A party will be held for the twinning group at the George Reynolds Centre on the Saturday evening with food and local musicians, before they depart for their journey back to France on the morning of Sunday May 28th.
