Sunday, November 25th, 2012

After his election as Chairman, Cllr Clements paid tribute to the outgoing committee and thanked them for all their hard work.

Speaking after the meeting, Cllr Clements said, “Tamworth twinning was started over 30 years ago with our twin town in Germany Bad Laasphe and just over 10 years ago we twinned with Vaujours in France.

“The ethos of twinning is to allow like-minded groups of people to twin with the same sorts of groups in the twin towns and over the years, many sporting triumphs have been had with teams from both sides of the water.  More recently with Bolehall Swifts Juniors going over to France for a tournament.  Next year Tamworth Voices are visiting to sing with the choir in Vaujours.

The Association also holds regular fundraising events, the next event is a quiz night at the Royal British Legion on Friday 11th January 2013, and ticket prices are £5 per team of four.
