If you are interested in becoming part of Llandeilo Town Twinning Association, we'd love to hear from you.
We're a small and friendly group, with people from all walks of life. We have around 40 members, of all ages, currently including 3 families with children under 18.
Our main event every year is the exchange visit, but we also have an AGM in November, Christmas meal, and a social gathering along with the 3 Parks Challenge. We have a Committee which meets 4 times a year, and we try to have a social get together in months when nothing else is planned. This might be a meal out, a get together at someones house, a visit to the pub, a quiz or similar. We also socialise with other local twinning groups, many of which are also twinned with Breton towns. That means that there's usually something happening every month if you want to get fully involved - plus French lessons which run on a weekly basis when they're on. Most events are on a Monday night or a weekend.
Of course, if you don't want to be so involved, that's fine too, but if you come with us to France, there is an expectation that you will host on the return visit.
You do need to be based in the Llandeilo area, and to agree with our aims and objectives, which are as follows:
The aims of the Association are to promote social, cultural and educational links between the communities of Llandeilo and Le Conquet in Brittany, France. Specific objectives to achieve these aims are as follows:
