Constantine Cornwall

Twinning

Constantine and District Twinning Association is a vibrant organisation dedicated to bringing together the residents of the parishes of Constantine and Gweek, and Pont-Croix in Brittany.   Pont-Croix is a small, attractive town, set in rural countryside at the head of the river Goyen.

The Association has flourished with visits to each country taking place in alternate years.  The Cornish contingent stay with members of the Twinning Association in Brittany and are always given a royal welcome. They visit places of interest; are wined and dined magnificently and get a real insight into Breton homes and family life.  A more recent development has been the establishment of close links between Constantine Primary School and the primary schools in Pont-Croix.  Many families have joined the Associations on both sides of the Channel and the programme now includes an opportunity for children to experience school life with their young hosts.  This has continued successfully for children as they progress to secondary education.

It is not necessary to speak French but if you have a lot or a little you will be encouraged to give it a try. Our latest Newsletter provides further information about recent and upcoming Twinning activities.
