Members of the local community are invited to a cheese and wine party being held on Friday evening (11th June) to celebrate the 10th anniversary of the twinning of Bradley Stoke and Champs-sur-Marne (France).
A party of 23 guests from the French town is visiting Bradley Stoke over the Community Festival weekend and they will be welcomed at the function by Mayor Ben Walker and other members of the Town Council.
Christopher Lee of Bradley Stoke Twinning Association says:
“… why not take this opportunity to meet some of our European and local neighbours to enjoy great conversation and food and wine together?”
The party takes place between 7pm and 9pm at Bradley Stoke Community School, Fiddlers Wood Lane. For more details, contact Christopher on 07818 005 970.
The French group, accompanied by members of the Twinning Association, will go on to visit a number of Community Festival events over the weekend.
A highlight of the visit will be the 10th Anniversary Twinning Civic Dinner at the Aztec Hotel & Spa on Saturday evening, where invited guests include Bradley Stoke MP Jack Lopresti and Chair of South Gloucestershire Council Janet Biggin.
The diners will be treated to a Champagne and canapé reception, courtesy of the hotel.
Bradley Stoke Town Council has made an ex-gratia payment of £250 towards the cost of hosting the visitors over the weekend.
Information about the Bradley Stoke Twinning Association will be available at the Southern Brooks Community Partnership stall at the Community Festival on Saturday.
