Bridgend has Town Twinning links with Langenau in Southern Germany (1971) and Villenave d’Ornon in Aquitaine (1994) and a Friendship Link with Hechtel Eksel in Belgium (2011).
Visitors are hosted in people’s homes and enjoy the full experience of being a member of the community. Visits sometimes coincide with big sporting events and visitors are taken out and about to get to know the local area. Over the years many firm and lasting friendships have developed.
Town Twinning is governed by a Constitution drawn up by Bridgend Town Twinning Association. The Mayor of Bridgend is the President of Town Twinning during his/her year in office and the Association receives some support from Bridgend Town Council.
