Twinning with Lèves

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. 

In the June 2023 bulletin issue 132, you can read all about Nailsworth Twinning's visit to Lèves, together with Nailsworth Silver Band. It was a fun packed weekend with beautiful weather, lots of laughs, music of different kinds and wonderful hospitality. 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. You can read about our various events and activities in the bulletins (regular boules games during the summer, quizzes and wine-tastings, treasure trails and so forth). The next time members of the “jumelage de Lèves” visit us in Nailsworth is 9th – 12th May 2024. The full programme will be published in a future bulletin or come and find out more at our stand at the Town Meeting in April.

The Association welcomes new members and especially encourages young people and families with children to get involved. We are planning some fun events and activities with young people in mind so keep an eye on the notice boards at the Library and Civic Centre. 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 on our trips to France. Membership is currently £10.00 per person and £20 per family which gives access to our biennial trips to France, social events and newsletters.
