About Twinning

Background

Droitwich  

Spa  

has  

been  

twinned  

with  

Bad  

Ems,  

another  

spa  

town,  

in

Germany  

through  

a  

joint  

Council  

Twinning  

Charter  

signed  

in  

1983.  

Since

then visits have taken place in alternate years to each town.

What is this twinning all about?

It's  

when  

the  

people,  

across  

all  

walks  

of  

life,  

from  

similar  

towns  

or  

cities

and  

from  

two  

(or  

more)  

countries  

join  

together,  

often  

through  

formal

Town  

Twinning  

Charters,  

to  

exchange  

friendship  

and  

culture  

through

visits  

to  

each  

others  

towns  

either  

as  

individuals,  

groups  

or  

clubs  

(e.g.

walking, dancing, tennis, football).

Do I need to speak German?

NO. It is definitely not essential, many Germans speak very good English,

but it is always good to try to learn some German words.

Where/with whom will I stay in Bad Ems?

You will stay in the house of your host family in Bad Ems or the

surrounding villages. The hospitality is fantastic!

How do I choose my twinning partners?

Individuals,  

couples  

and  

families  

from  

each  

town  

give  

information  

about

themselves,  

e.g.  

ages,  

occupations,  

hobbies,  

sports,  

likes  

and  

dislikes

and  

then  

similar  

people  

or  

families  

are  

paired  

(or  

twinned)  

wherever

possible. The moredetail you give the better!

Why Twin?

For  

fun,  

enjoyment,  

friendship,  

and  

to  

see  

and  

share  

in  

each  

other's

towns,  

countries  

and  

lifestyles  

(through  

twinning  

activities)  

in  

a  

way  

that

goes  

beyond  

mere  

tourism.  

It  

is  

also  

a  

good  

way  

to  

meet  

many  

new

friends in Droitwich Spa.

How is Twinning Funded?

The  

Twinning  

Associations  

in  

Droitwich  

are  

not  

"a  

jolly  

on  

the  

Rates"  

and

never  

have  

been.  

All  

expenses  

are  

paid  

for  

from  

the  

members  

pockets,

not from the Council Tax payers.
