The Borough of Reigate and Banstead is twinned with Brunoy in France and Eschweiler in Germany.
Our links with the two towns are many and varied. Many people from this borough have forged friendships over the years through mutual interests in sport, culture and education, sometimes extending over several generations. Twinning visitors are accommodated in the home of a host family, usually as a reciprocal arrangement. Visits include a mixture of organised activities (receptions, coach trips etc) and time spent with the host family.
We also hold regular fund-raising activities, such as wine-tastings, dinners or quizzes, which has the advantage of letting members get to know each other before going abroad.
The age and linguistic ability of members in all three countries is very variable, so there is no need to feel inhibited.
The Association publishes a regular newsletter, the most recent copy of which can be found on the Town twinning website.
