What is Twinning ?:

Twin towns or sister cities are a form of legal and social agreement between towns, cities, counties, prefectures, provinces, regions, states, and even countries in geographically and politically distinct areas to promote cultural and commercial ties.

The modern concept of town twinning, conceived after the Second World War in 1947, was intended to foster friendship and understanding between different cultures and between former foes as an act of peace and reconciliation, and to encourage trade and tourism.

In recent times, town twinning has increasingly been used to form strategic international business links between member towns and cities.

Historical Background to Newtown Twinning:

  • The twinning of Newtown & Les Herbiers first began in 1999.
  • Over the years, there have been many cultural exchanges such as musical events, school exchanges and food festivals along with sporting activities such as football, cycling and the twinning Olympiads.
  • Many personal relationships and friendships have been developed over the years to the benefits of all concerned.
  • In 2010, both towns celebrated the 10th anniversary of the twinning.
  • In 2015 the Newtown Twinning Association reformed.
  • In 2016, Les Herbiers celebrated the 20th annevarsary of the Comite Jumelage formation.

 

What Twinning brings to Newtown:

It covers a vibrant array of areas such as:

  • Art & culture; Education; Sports; Business; Sustainable development; Citizenship; Public services; Economic growth; Learning another language; Social inclusion.

By Bringing People together from different countries and cultures, it gives us:  an opportunity to share problems & solutions; exchange opinions; learn from each other; create friendships through common interests and issues.  Developing exchanges between many different groups and organisations within the twin towns.
