Pucklechurch is twinned with the French town of Pringy. Members of the Pucklechurch Twinning Association and of Euro/Pringy arrange exchange visits each year. During this time there are many social and organised events.
Why not pop along to one of the members meetings that are held every few weeks on Monday evenings in the Village Hall meeting room (see calendar for next meeting). You’ll find us a friendly bunch and will be able to answer your questions and help you decide if Twinning is for you.
The question we get most often is, “do I need to speak French?” Well, the answer is no! In fact there are many members of the Pucklechurch Twinning Association that don’t speak French. Despite this many long term friendships have evolved and the language barrier does not inhibit everyone having fun. Having said that, at times it obviously does help to speak a few words!
As well as the formal visits Pucklechurch Twinning has a full year long calendar of social events which you can find on the village calendar. Everything from skittles, safari supper, wooden horse racing to our Christmas Wine & Cheese party. Read about some of our activities in past editions of Pucklechurch News here:
