What we do . . .
Welcome to the Truro-Morlaix Twinning Association web-site.
Where are we? Truro is a small city located in the south-west of England. Morlaix is found in Brittany, in the north-west of France.
How long have we been an association? We were created in 1979 by the two Mayors, Mr JJ Cléach of Morlaix and Mrs DM Ansari of Truro; so we celebrated our 30th Anniversary in 2009!
Who are we? We are a group of people from in and around Truro who have a love for France and want to socialise with like-minded people. People of all ages and backgrounds are members, and we are delighted at the growing number of children who are members.
What do we do? We regularly hold social events, organise trips to France, and hold a highly successful Immersion course in France. Each year we take a large group of members to Morlaix for a long weekend. Most of us stay in the homes of local people and then offer them hospitality when they come to Truro.
Never been to France? Then this is the ideal way to find out about the country: You have the support and protection of a large group going with you. All the bookings are taken care of - you just turn up.
Don't speak French? You don't have to, as many of the French speak English, and you will soon pick it up!
Uneasy about staying in someone's home? You don't have to be as we try and match you up with a similar family/age group etc. But if you prefer, you can pay to stay in B&B.
Bit short of money? No problem, apart from the discounted ferry fare, if you stay with a Morlaix twinner then all you need is a small gift for your host, everything else is paid for, including all your food and entertainment.
Not much room at home? It is not necessary to host in order to join and take part. All we ask is that you support our fund-raising events throughout the year.
A bit shy or on your own? We are a friendly lot who welcome individuals and families of all ages as well as groups, societies and associations to join us. We usually have social/fundraising events once a month which gives you the opportunity to meet our members and make friends.
