Youth Visits 2016 and beyond…

Youth Twinning Exchange: 20-27 August 2016

Every year, usually in August, a Youth Exchange for youngsters, aged between 11-16, takes place between Stapleford and Villedômer ,  with participants spending about 4 days in each country.

Stapleford Twinning Association aplanned to organise their youth twinning exchange during the week of 20-27 August 2016.  The week would have involved the English group staying with families in Villedômer for the first part of the week and the French group staying with families in the Stapleford vicinity for the second part of the week.  Outings and events were to be organised throughout the week by Villedômer and Stapleford twinning committees. In the event, only part of this planned week took place with youngsters from Villedômer visiting Stapleford; unfortunately there were insufficient Staplefordians able to go to France.

Would anyone in your family be interested in joining us for the exchange in 2018? Children aged 11-16 are eligible to take part. We are also looking for parents who might like to accompany the youth group to France.

The trip usually costs about £150, depending on Ryanair Flight prices at the time of booking.  Families will be involved in hosting activities which are usually a lot of fun.

Please send expressions of interest to Jill Gardner by email ( or phone her on 01223 520562 before the end of November.

Don’t hesitate to ask further questions if you would like more information and if you know anyone else who might be interested then please direct them to this website as well as encourage them to contact Jill Gardner.
