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 and decorate a gingerbread man.

 

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 Music from the Movies. The concert will be followed by a buffet supper, including water and soft drinks, provided by the Twinning Committee.  Please bring your own beer and wine etc if you wish. Tickets are now available at £10.00 each from the Lighthouse Bookshop, High St, Highworth.

 

September 27 - 30 September

HTA have been invited  to visit Pontorson and details have now been 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.
