What is the Edenbridge and District Twinning Association?
It is an agency of the Edenbridge Town Council. The Association was formed
over 40 years ago “to promote friendship and understanding” between the people
of Edenbridge, Kent and its surrounding villages and the people of Mont Saint Aignan
in Normandy, France. A copy of the original charter signed by the Mayor of
Mont-Saint-Aignan and the Chairman of the Edenbrldge Town Council hangs in the
Council Chamber in Doggetts Barn.
What does the Edenbridge and District Twinning Association do?

Together with the French organising committee we try to arrange exchanges for
individuals who wish to find work experience in France.
