Originally established in 1982 to enhance links between Sees in Normandy and Southwell, English twinning members stay with a French family and the following year our French counterparts stay in Southwell on a reciprocal basis. Families are very welcome and fluency is French is not requisite. We aim to match hosts and guests by interests, ages and command of language. On our visits to France we have enjoyed visiting places of interest eg Le Mans Racing Circuit, Honfleur, Rouen, various chateaux, factories and craft centres. In Southwell the Association meets most months throughout the year holding social events including quizzes, picnics an annual dinner and food tasting.
