Chorleywood Twinning Association Quiz

posted 3 Feb 2013, 07:36 by Tomo
The Chorleywood Twinning Association is running a Quiz night on Saturday 2nd March at 7pm to raise funds for the upcoming visit of our ville jumelle (twin town) Dardilly in the Rhone-Alpes region of France (near Lyon).

The Quiz is to raise the public profile of the Association and provides money to use when we host our visitors from Dardilly. We need money because the Dardilly group receives some subsidy from their council and always hosts us in style. We cannot hope to reciprocate if we haven't raised money in the intervening 2 years.

The next visit is taking place, from Dardilly to Chorleywood, from 20th-24th April 2013. We are currently still looking for local hosts, particularly for a family with 2 daughters aged 17 and 21, and also for a mother and daughter of 15 and a couple of single women, all of whom would like to establish a permanent "partnership" with Chorleywood families, who would then be hosted in return, in Dardilly at a future date.
 
For 15 years, now, Chorleywood and Dardilly families/couples/single people have been exchanging visits between the two towns. Many very good friendships have been made and many people find they visit at other times, too. It is not necessary to speak good French, though it's probably a good idea to make an effort! We have a Conversation Group for those wishing to brush up their language skills and members range from beginners to a few fairly fluent people, who may have lived there for work, or in a holiday home.
 
If you want to sign up for the Quiz or find out more about the Chorleywood Twinning Association, or think you can help host some families in April this year, please contact Pat Howell, Secretary, Chorleywood Twinning Association on 01923 774010 or by email at pat.howell12@ntlworld.com
