Devon Twinning Circle is a voluntary organisation made up of member associations in Devon.
Twinning Associations are voluntary organisations which maintain and find links through the activities and goodwill of volunteers. Over 100 towns and villages in Devon are currently twinned with communities overseas including France, Italy, Germany, Switzerland, Holland, Russia, Uganda, New Zealand, Japan and Hungary.
The Twinning Circle meets regularly to compare notes, offer ideas on the development of twinning activities, foster contacts in other countries and, through that association, provide a group insurance benefit.
Membership of the Devon Twinning Circle costs just £10 per association per year which can be quickly recouped through the beneficial insurance rates negotiated by the Circle. It produces its own newsletter which promotes twinning activities and foster contacts. Currently, around 80 twinning associations are members of the Twinning Circle.
