Join Earls Colne Twinning Association and make new friends both here and in France!

Do you love France and want to know more about its way of life, food, language and traditions?


Earls Colne has a thriving Twinning Association (ECTA) that enables you and your family to enjoy entertaining a French family in your home and then visit them in Nonancourt, France.  


In 2015 we celebrated our 40th anniversary. Our members live in Earls Colne, Colne Engaine, White Colne, Wakes Colne, Greenstead Green, Sudbury, Coggeshall and beyond and all enjoy the sociability and fun of being a member of one of the best twinning associations in East Anglia.


Since 1975 Earls Colne has been twinned with Nonancourt, a medieval market town in Normandy.  Find out more by visiting the Nonancourt page. There are also pictures in the Gallery and more information about Earls Colne Twinning Association.


Right now we have a number of French families on our waiting list, they are keen to join us, but host twin families here are needed. You don't need to be able to speak French but you do need to enjoy socialising and making new friends both English and French.
