This year, the Matlock-Eaubonne Twinning Association celebrates its 21st anniversary of successful twinning with its partner town Eaubonne, a pleasant town some 20km to the north of Paris.
Visits take place every year, even years seeing META members visiting Eaubonne, and odd years Eaubonne members coming to Matlock.
We are expecting about 60 French visitors this year for the weekend of 17th -20th May, the majority of whom will be making a return visit to Matlock. We have planned an interesting weekend of activities for the visit, including a full day visit to Sheffield.
However, among the party are three French families with children, for whom we have so far been unable to find accommodation. One is a family of four, with two boys aged 10 & 13, the other two are families of three, parents with a girl aged 12, and a father coming with his twin daughters aged 9 All have requested, if possible, to be accommodated with a family with children of similar ages. All the parents speak English, so language should not be a problem. If anyone reading this can help, or is interested
in finding out more, please contact the Peter Vincent, the META Accommodation Officer on 01246 590259 or Brian Smith, the META Secretary on 01629 56559 and we will be delighted to discuss more details with you.
