6. Colchester Twinning Society
Twinning is the means by which communities which find they have certain common histories, interest, sizes or other connections, come together and form a civic link. The original impetus was to form links between communities which either had been on opposite sides in the two World Wars, or which had been allies, and wished to continue friendships.
Twinning now exists to promote peace, friendship and international understanding. This gives opportunities to the Twin Town inhabitants for travel, sport, cultural visits and foreign language improvement.
Colchester is twinned with Wetzlar in Germany, Avignon in France and Imola in Italy. We meet for meals, visits to the twin towns, talks and other social events.
