Helston has been twinned with Sasso Marconi in Italy since 1968 and a very strong relationship has developed between the two towns.
In June2011 Helston was also officially twinned with Plougasnou in Brittany, approximately 40 minutes’ drive from Roscoff.
Helston and District Town Twinning Association is organised around two groups, the Sasso Marconi group and the Plougasnou group, but some people are members of both. Both groups’ mission is to bring all like minded people together, breaking down cultural boundaries and creating lasting friendships.
- Would you like to visit Sasso Marconi or Plougasnou and experience their way of life?
- Could you host Italian or French visitors, when they visit Helston?
- Would you help with fund raising to cover the costs of visits from both towns and participate in the ‘Twinning’ social calendar?
- Are you a member of a club, an association, or have children at school or involved in youth groups and want to explore the possibility of visiting either of our twin towns?
If you have said “yes” to any of these questions, why not broaden your horizons and contact Helston and District Town Twinning Association today?
