The Spetisbury/Le Vast Twinning Association was formed in the late 1980s and is still going strong. Le Vast is a pretty little village on the banks of the Saire River, about 25 minutes' drive from Cherbourg. We take turns to visit each other every year for a weekend and our next trip to France will be in 2017, when we will stay with our hosts and be entertained by them. In 2018 the French will come to Spetisbury and it will be our turn to accommodate and entertain them.
Over the years strong friendships have formed between families and people often visit one another outside of the organised twinning weekends. There is absolutely no need to speak any French! Several of our French twins speak some English but it is surprising how much can be conveyed in 'Franglais' and sign language, especially after a glass or two of wine!
We always welcome new members and would especially encourage families with young children to join us. The annual subscription is £10 per adult with school-age children free.
