Our aims are to promote and organise exchanges of residents and friends between Tenterden and Avallon and to encourage commerce and friendship within and between townspeople. We organise exchange visits generally on a biennial basis, a party from Avallon coming to Tenterden one year, hosted by members of the Tenterden & District Twinning Association (TDTA) and a return visit to Avallon the following year. Membership is open to residents of Tenterden and the surrounding area. Membership per annum: £5 per adult, children under 16 £2.50 each. Knowledge of French is not essential.
