Lymm Twin Town Society
What is the Twin Town Society
Lymm has been twinned with MEUNG-SUR-LOIRE for over 50 years. Meung is a delightful small town about 10 miles west of Orléans in the Loire valley, an hour south of Paris. In Lymm we hold social events during the year both to keep in touch with each other and raise money for the visit of our counterparts from France.
The highlight of the year is the Exchange visit. This is when when either the people from Lymm or Meung-Sur-Loire will host their guests from the visiting country.
In May 2018 almost seventy Lymm residents went to Meung-sur-Loire as part of the annual family exchange between the two villages. In 2019 we took our french guests to Arley Hall and Ironbridge. Both events were a great success. Further details can be found in this web site.
If this is something you feel that you might like to be part then new members are always welcome. You can always come along and meet us at our social events before you consider joining in an Exchange visit. For more details about the society, membership and events use the contact us tab on this site.
For information about how the exchange visits are organised please see the Previous Exchanges page on this site.
LymMeung Soiree - Saturday 27th February
Our Bingo night will be held on Zoom. Everyone is welcome, regardless of whether you have a partner family in France or not.
The event is free but please let us know by Monday, 22nd February if you plan to join us and how many sets of cards you would like in your family/household. This is so we know how many Bingo cards to "print and email out". However I'm sure that we will have a few spare cards anyway.
And great news, as promised in January’s newsletter, the committee will entertain us with a musical number or two. You might want to consider having a glass of wine ready to see you through this.
Exchange Visit : 2021
We have been invited back to Meung-Sur-Loire in 2021. We are in the process of sorting out which date is best for our Soceity and fits in with the Meung Jumelage. Let us hope we are back to normal by then!
Annual membership costs £20 for singles, £25 for single parent families, £40 for couples and £50 for families.
Members receive a newsletter, reduced prices at Exchange events, especially when hosting. Under 11's go free to social events and under 16s are half-price.
