Frequently Asked Questions

Q: How much does it cost to be a member?


A: £20 for a family and £15 for a single person. Additionally there are very reasonable charges for the trip to France (sharing the cost of the coach) and for the events that are laid on when our French friends come to stay.

Q: When is the annual Twinning Weekend?


A: Always the last weekend in April running into the first May Bank Holiday. Dates vary of course but one year we go to France on this weekend and next year they visit us. See the page about the Twinning Weekend for more information.

Q: Can children go on their own?


A: No. Children must always be accompanied by a responsible adult.

Q: Do I have to be able to speak French?


A: No. Although it is an advantage to speak French many of our families cannot and have lots of fun trying to communicate over the weekend with their hosts. Many of the French can't speak English either. But it doesn't matter when you are having fun.
