Twinning Association

Twinning Association

Coldstream Twinning Association has existed for over 20 years and is twinned with Bennecourt in the Yvelines District of Il de France, 50 miles west of Paris and on the banks of the river Seine. It's a beautiful and welcoming area. Exchanges generally take place every 18 months, whether the French are hosted here, or the French host us.

While the Bennecourt party involves around 60 adults and children, Coldstream has around 30 and the populations of the two towns are similar.

What we need here is more young families to become involved.

The Association received a Hudson Hirsel grant of £300 in June 2016 to promote the concept of twinning.
