Welcome to the
Corsham Twinning Association

Linked with Jargeau, France since 1981

Latest News



Firstly thank you for the kind messages I received following my recent medical problems. The committee have held a ‘virtual’ meeting and decided there will be no further activities this year. We will review this in early in 2021. We also decided there will be no subs payable for 2021, so please cancel your annual standing order. Finally we have provisionally set the weekend of 18/19 September 2021 to visit Jargeau. The feasibility and practicality of this will be assessed in the New Year. Roger Fido

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 nearly 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.

Roger Fido


Born and raised in Corsham, Roger has his finger in pretty much every twinning pie. If you've got a question, he's your man.

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.
