2018 Twinning Weekend

We were incredibly lucky with the weather during our Twinning Weekend that was held from Friday 18th to Monday 21st May with members from the Mayenne Club in France and the Geldermalsen Club in Holland.

Right from the moment we met our guests at the Community First offices on Friday evening, the sun continued to shine (well Ok it had a break overnight) until Monday when the last of the guests departed.

Below are some ‘photos and videos from the weekend which, although we did miss the Royal Wedding and FA Cup Final, was thoroughly enjoyed by all as noted by Derk van den Haak, the Geldermalsen President, in the following note:

On behalf of Rotary Club Geldermalsen I would like to thank our friends from Devizes for the great weekend. Well organized and varied.

Just like the Royal Wedding it has been amazing!
