Welcome To The Warwick Twinning Association Website
“together to promote international friendship”
The Association is a non-political independent organisation with membership open to all interested individuals, families, clubs and other groups in Warwick or nearby.
Funds necessary to support and promote exchanges, visits and other twinning related activities are raised by subscriptions and social events held at various times throughout the year. Members endeavour to visit at least one of our twinned or friendship towns each year.
Warwick Town signed up to formal twinning agreements with Saumur, France in 1976, Verden, Germany in 1989 and friendship ties with Havelberg, Germany in 1990. Formigine, Italy is new on the scene but the Association is forging links that hopefully will lead to formal friendship status with Warwick Town. The Association was founded a year or so after 1976 to open up the ‘twinning ideal’ to all residents.
Things have changed a great deal from those early days but friendships made still remain.
Though on a much smaller scale exchanges between our towns still take place with schools, community groups, work experience involved in them. The importance of our visits to maintain these contacts is vital, and of course very enjoyable. One of the benefits of smaller parties travelling is the choice of transport by car and ferry, by rail or by air.
There is plenty going on so if it sounds like your kind of activity please join us at one of our meetings or events. Dates and venues will be found on our website or on Facebook.
We are not all about culture and castles, a good meal with good wine, a large frothy beer or joining in with the many festivals and events held in our partnership towns.
