Welcome to the Coleford Twinning Association 

Coleford Town twinned with St Hilaire de Riez, in the Vendee region of France in 2016. The Coleford Twinning Association has a vibrant relationship with our French partner, the Exchanges Franco Brittanique Association. 

Signing the Twinning Contract

In August 2016 representatives of the newly formed Coleford Twinning Association (CTA) travelled across to St Hilaire de Riez in order to meet representatives from the Exchanges Franco Brittaniques Association (EFB Asso). Iain Baird, as Chair of CTA, signed a twinning contract, along with Damien Guibert, President of EFB Asso. This was the official start of our twinning relationship. The photograph also shows Paul Kay, who was Mayor of Coleford in 2016, and Laurent Boudelier, Mayor of St Hilaire de Riez. Paul Kay has a holiday home in St Hilaire and initiated  the link between the two communities. 

We are keen to welcome new members. If you are interested, then feel free to contact one of the Coleford Twinning Association team, via secretary@colefordtwinning.org
