Otterton Twinning Association

AGM - 12th March 7.30om Otterton Village Hall - Twinning Association AGM

Otterton has been Twinned with the Norman Village of Vieux in France for 36 years. During this time many friendships have been made and still continue. There are two visits per year, we visit them once and they come to us once a year. We are a self-funding Association and pay for our travel to France. Once there, we are very well looked after by our French host families and join in various activities arranged for us. When the French come to us we entertain them which is costly, hence the need for fundraising events.

The Twinning helps foster friendship between local families here. It arranges numerous events in and around Otterton during the year.
