We're sorry to have to report that our Chairman Roger Fido has passed away. He was at home where he wanted to be with his family by his side. He touched so many lives, both at home and across the channel with his dedication to the link with our twin town Jargeau.

About Us

Hello! We are the Corsham Twinning Association.

This small town in Wiltshire has been linked with Jargeau on the Loire Valley in France, for 40 years.

There are yearly exchange visits (we go there on the odd years and they come to us on the evens) and we hold regular fund raising events throughout the year (see event section for more).

We'd love you to join us, so please get in touch to find out more or download this Membership.pdf application form.
About Us


Maurice Hancock


Maurice is one of the longest serving members of the twinning group. He's been on numerous trips to France and has built up great relationships with members on both sides of the channel. Language is not a barrier for Maurice.

Jane Gater

Vice Chair

Jane has been a supporter of the twinning association for many years and among other things, regularly organises the annual March meal at Gastard village hall.

Sue Wingrave


Sue is a key member of the twinning group, as she reminds us all where we should be and when. Together with her husband Matt, the 'Wingraves' host the annual bbq at their home during the Summer. The food is fabulous... it's worth joining just for that.

Maggie Taylor

Minutes Secretary

Maggie can be found at our monthly meetings frantically scribbling down the many ideas being chewed over at committee meetings and then has the unenviable job of making sense of it all later. Maggie has been on several trips to Jargeau together with her husband John.

Jonathan Fido


Jonathan looks after the website and can also be found on 'the decks' when we have visitors from France, providing the disco at our big meal.


Annual BBQ

This event must be booked in advance due to covid-19 restrictions. Money will be taken on the night, but you can express your interest in attending by booked here.
