Bridgend Town Twinning has started 2016 on a very positive note. The committee has been very active over the past few months with social and fundraising events.

A successful meal was enjoyed by all at Seasons Restaurant in Bridgend College when a few friends from Pencoed Town Twinning joined us. In January we held a Call my Bluff social evening at The Pheasant, with a sophisticated panel of Mrs Lyn Hillsdon, Mr Ian Hutchinson and Mr Jonathan Kirkup. The evening proved very interesting with Mr A. Kendall as our compere and lots of interesting words and definitions being thrown around.

In October a party From Hecktel-Eksel in Belgium visited Bridgend in order to further friendship links and a delegation from our French twin town of Villenave D’ornon are expected at the end of February. While staying with hosts in Bridgend meetings will take place between our towns to further educational, cultural and retail links.
