ABOUT WVTA
HISTORY
The Twinning Charter between Wimborne and Valognes was signed in 1968, making WVTA one of the oldest twinning associations in the country. The charter is displayed in Wimborne Minster Town Hall.

WHAT WE DO
We try to help families and individual members to make friends in our twin town. Accommodation is usually en famille. Once contact has been made, English and French friends often continue their link on their own.
Please see Exchanges for our policy on educational visits and work experience.

SPORTING AND CULTURAL GROUPS
Sporting and cultural groups can be helped to contact their opposite numbers with a view to taking part in events together. Once contact has been made, English and French clubs usually continue their link on their own.

SOCIAL ACTIVITIES
There is a full social programme in Wimborne throughout the year  including games of Boules (Pétanque), dinners, cream teas, barbecues, skittles, wine tastings, quizzes, and other events.

MANAGEMENT
WVTA is managed by volunteers, independently of local government.
Committee members are elected at an AGM every in January or February. We maintain close contact with our Town Council and enjoy their support.

OFFICIAL VISITS
These take place in each direction every
other year, and any member is entitled
to take part. We are invariably given a
mayoral reception and an interesting time
by our hosts and we endeavour to reciprocate.

FINANCE
Our income is derived from members’ subscriptions and advertising,
with occasional small grants from the Town Council.

KEEPING IN TOUCH
We send members a regular Newsletter to keep them informed of our current and future activities. Copies also go to our friends in Valognes and to all our advertisers. The newsletter can be sent by post, or can be downloaded from this web site.
