ABOUT BRADLEY STOKE - TWINNING ASSOCIATION
After the Second world war in 1945, Sir Winston Churchill, the English
Prime minister from 1939-1945 saw a future linking the communities of
Europe. By encouraging people to overcome prejudices and break down
barriers he thought another major war in Europe could be prevented.
This idea was taken up and has lead to the many Twinning links we see
today. From the first links with France and Germany Twinning has become
a world wide activity.
Everyone who gets involved in Twinning has a lot of fun, Whatever
your age or background, Twinning is an excellent way to meet new people,
from abroad - and locally, through a Twinning Association.
Bradley Stoke Twinning Association was formed in 1990 when we formally
twinned with Champs Sur Marne in 2000.
New members and families are always welcome to join the Twinning Association.
