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. We haven't been able ro arrange any visits in 2020 or 2021 but we are hoping to visit Meung-sur-Loire in 2022.
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.
Outdoor Event Sunday 15th August
A really successful afternoon that was enjoyed by all. We had to move the event into August to avoid restrictions that would have changed how we ran the barbecue. Whilst this meant that many (but not all) families with children were missing. It was a very good turnout from everyone else.
The weather was mixed but with a full set of "Event Shelters", the event wasn't impacted at all. So we barbecued Hopkinson's meat and served it with home made salads and finished with home made desserts. So as you can imagine the food was superb and it was really good to meet up and chat with our friends. Some of whom we haven't seen in person for 18 months.
Exchange Visit : 2022
The dates we had asked for over easter clash with elections in France. We are now hoping to arrange this from Wednesday 1st June to Sunday 5th June 2022. Further details when we have them.
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.
