What's new

Social event

We’re having a get-together on Tuesday 28 August at the Boundary Park Pavilion, Great Western Park, at 7:30pm.  This is an opportunity for a chat, to get to know each other better and find out more about twinning.  All are welcome so please bring along any friends who might be interested.

Didcot Town Fayre 2018

You couldn’t have wished for a better day to hold the Didcot Town Fayre and we were pleased to have a stall there to raise the profile of the Twinning Association.
Penny (left) organised our entry and is seen here having a rest just before the opening of the fayre.

It seems it’s never too hot for chocolate roulette!!!!  We had a steady stream of visitors throughout the afternoon, mostly small children (right) but also some big kids too, including the Mayor and Lady Mayoress, Bill and Angela Service (below right) and our local police (below left).

It was good to meet Lisa Khan, who will be going on the next visit to Meylan, and others interested in the towns twiining links.

AGM 2018

 L to R: Axel Macdonald (Chair of the Association), Bill Service (Mayor of Didcot) and Geoff Oldham (Secretary to the Association)

The AGM at the Civic Hall was well attended tonight (Tuesday 12 June 2018) including by a number of Town Councillors.  We are grateful to Bill Service, Mayor  of Didcot, for chairing.

Didcot Twinning Association at Get on Board Event​

A useful day promoting Twinning  at the Didcot Get on Board Event on Saturday 2 June 2018.  Signed up a few more people for the newsletter (some of whom might become members!), and making contacts with other groups in Didcot who we hope will establish links with their counterparts in Meylan and Planegg.  Thanks to the Rotary Club and Didcot First for organising the event.

Youth Exchanges
From time to time we are approached by families in Meylan and Planegg who would like to arrange private exchanges or penpals for their children. If we have any such inquiries they will appear on this page.
In addition details will be circulated in our newsletter.
We are happy to pass on your requests too.

Clubs and Societies
If your club or society is interested in establishing links with an equivalent organisation in any of our twin towns, please get in touch. Although we do not get directly involved in such cultural and sporting exchanges, we are happy to try to put you in touch with your counterparts in Didcot, Meylan or Planegg.
