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.
After a 3 year break that was forced by Covid the exchange with Meung-sur-Loire resumed. We spent a happy but exhausting few days with our hosts in Meung. There was hardly a minute to spare between organised events. The weather was glorious, that helped also.
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.
Summer Barbecue - Sunday 17th July
Do you think that you or your family a holiday where you experience France and it's culture at first hand? Do you live in Lymm or the surrounding area? Good knowledge of French not required - although a few words helps!
If the answer to the first question is even a maybe then why not come along and meet us at either our Stall at the Lymm FoodFest or come along to our barbecue on Sunday, July 17th.
