The Coleford Twinning Association is preparing an exciting programme for 2021.

We hope to be welcoming visitors from St Hilaire de Riez, as well as organising a trip to France. We will re-schedule the postponed French meal arranged with Vincent, deputy-president of EFB (our sister organisation) and a top chef. Unfortunately this had to be postponed until the Covid-19 crisis has abated. Tickets for all our events available through the Coleford Tourist Centre.

See our Events page for more information on the dinner and on other events.


We also have a number of social and fund-raising events taking place, of which there is more information on the Events page.

In August 2019  a group of Coleford twinning Association members travelled to St Hilaire de Riez. Many were hosted by EFB members and joined their hosts for a variety of social activities. Pictures of the various activities during the week can be found on the GALLERY pages.

There will be more group visits once the Covid-19 restrictions disappear - hopefully in 2021 We wish all our friends in St Hilaire a healthy and safe few months

Online French conversation session

Every Monday evening at 7:00 pm a group of Twinning supporters have been meeting to try and improve our French. Now that we can no longer meet face-to-face, we have gone online, using a Zoom video conference program. If you are intersted in joining then send me an e-mail at [email protected] and I will get you connected to the group.
