Official Visits

Our visit to Itteville in May 2019

Our Official Visits between Newick and Itteville are the most important events of the year, because they give us a chance to meet our opposite numbers. This is, of course, what Twinning is all about. There is so much difference between visiting France as a holidaymaker, as compared with staying with a French family. Even if you don't speak French, it's always possible to communicate, and afterwards you may be inspired to brush up your language skills.

2022 Official Visit to Itteville - Friday 27th - Monday 30th May

This visit will celebrate the 30th anniversary of the founding of our Twinning Association, which is certainly something to celebrate! Because the visits in 2020 and 2021 were cancelled, it would normally be our turn to host our French friends, but they are very keen that we go to Itteville because we hosted the 25th anniversary celebrations in Newick in 2017, over the weekend of the Royal Wedding of Prince Harry and Meghan.

The visit will be over the last weekend of May, which normally includes the Bank Holiday Monday. However, the Government have now announced that instead of this we will have two days off on the following Thursday and Friday, to celebrate the Queen's Platinum Jubilee. This means that Monday 30th May will be a working day, but it is at least the start of the school half-term week, so children will be off school. We did consider moving the visit to the first weekend in June, but we didn't want to disrupt any advance planning the French have already done, and also we felt that many members would want to be at home to enjoy watching the Royal Jubillee celebrations.

At this stage, we just want to have some idea of how many people would be interested in going to Itteville, so that we can make initial enquiries about our travel arrangements. We therefore have a form that you can download and return to us. This does not commit you, but it is just to give us a rough idea of numbers.
