Membership

The Association aims high and continues to develop a relationship, not only with Val d’Oison, but also with its own community in Clanfield.

Formal links do involve the local councils in both countries, but making the relationships successful is down to voluntary work by both associations and their communities.

The Association currently has around 60 members.  New members would be most welcome, especially families, and anyone seeking  further information or wishing to enquire about joining, should contact one of the committee members who will be delighted to assist.          

The idea of seeking  a Twinning partner was first muted in 1992 and a special  team was formed to make a preliminary visit to Normandy.  Following a successful visit to a particularly suitable locality, the first committee was formed and  Twinning with Val d’Oison was fostered.

A trial visit was made by Val d’Oison in May 1994 with a reciprocal visit by Clanfield in the September - both of which were a huge success.  The Twinning accord was signed in Clanfield in April 1995 and reciprocated in Val d’Oison in May 1996.

The Association members make biennial visits to Val d’Oison, usually in May, and enjoy a very friendly and most hospitable welcome from their French partners.  On the alternate years, Clanfield members host their friends from Val d’Oison. There is an evolving social programme of events during the year held in Clanfield to keep members involved and to provide funding support for the exchange visits.

Members and friends enjoy such events as Quiz nights, BBQs, wine tasting evenings, car boot sales, and themed dinner evenings.
