Highworth Twinning Associationiation


Twinned with Pontorson, France and Wassenberg, Germany
Cricklade Road, Highworth



Our programme for the year is yet to be finalised but here are our provisonal plans.


Thursday, 15 March at 7.30pm - AGM

Come along and join us in the Community Room at the Council Offices to hear about our activities in 2017 and plans for 2018. Glass of wine and light refreshments afterwards!


Saturday 5 May

We'll have a stall at Highworth May Day celebrations, so why not stop by to chat about twinning.


May 10 - 13

HTA take the coach and cross the Channel to visit our twin town in Germany, Wassenberg for Ascension. Full programme of events is yet to be organised but previous trips have been most enjoyable and a good time was had by all! Participants stay with local families in Pontorson, so the likely cost is around £135 (coach and Eurotunnel), depending on numbers. For more information, please call Richard Pearce on 01793 762431 or use our contact page to get in touch.


Saturday July 21 at 7.30pm in Northview Community Centre - Concert

Come with your friends to hear the Eclectic String Band perform; they play all sorts of things from Baroque to Bartok, with a bit of Led Zepplin and film themes thrown in. Buffet afterwards. More details, including how to buy tickets, nearer the time.



HTA have been invited  to visit Pontorson but details have yet to be finalised. We hope to take two young people with us on this trip, their travel costs covered by the money raised in 2017 at the Taste of France event.
