Workington Town Council continues to enjoy a friendship with Workington’s twinned towns of Selm, Germany and Val de Reuil, France.
The Town Council strongly believes in the benefits of Twinning to develop relations, promoting social interaction and cultural exchange between individuals and groups in different countries with the people of Workington. Workington has been actively twinning with Selm and Val de Reuil for over 20 years.
Workington Town Council supports the Workington and District Twinning Association as the driving force at the heart of Twinning. Membership is open to everyone in Workington and the neighbouring villages, who enjoys travel and has a passion for building and sustaining international links. Their aims are met through cultural visits abroad with reciprocal hosting’s and opportunities to share experiences amongst local people with an international interest. There are also possibilities such as hosting work experience placements, developing links between clubs and societies and language learning.
The Workington and District Twinning Association is committed to sparking the interest and importance of Twinning with young people in the area and are keen to assist with school projects and exchanges, with the ability to assist financially.
