Nailsworth & District Twinning Association
Nailsworth Town twinning with Lèves offers members a unique opportunity; a chance to travel easily and affordably to France and to experience the culture by staying with local hosts. You don't need to speak French to take part. All that's required is a sense of adventure and desire to make new friends. In fact many of our members and their families have made strong friendships over the years. The last French visit here took place from 26th - 29th May, 2022 and saw 29 adults and young people from Lèves enjoy a fun-filled three-day exchange with families in and around Nailsworth. Read all about it in the June 2022 bulletin that you can download on this page.
For those that wish to, there is the option to welcome French visitors back to your home, to return the hospitality and show visitors around our lovely town and surroundings. However we appreciate that not everyone can host a visitor and members can participate in lots of other ways too. Our next activities this year will include boules matches against Whiteshill, a wine-tasting and quiz evening in the autumn and lunch with three or four Lévois on Remembrance Sunday when they come to represent Lèves at the Remembrance Service at St George Church.
The Association welcomes new members and especially encourages young people and families with children to get involved. Local interest groups are also welcome to join us and in the past we have taken the community choir, silver band, tennis club and cricket teams with us. Membership is currently £10.00 per person and £20 per family which gives access to our biennial trips to France, social events and newsletters.
