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. Our Exchange events are now restarting. See below for the itinery of our visit to Meung this year.
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.
