Twin Towns

Todmorden has two Twin Towns, Bramsche in Germany and Roncq in France.



Twin Town Latest

The Todmorden Town Twinning Association has had a busy 2022,  with a visit to Roncq in April to celebrate  40 years of twinning with Todmorden followed closely by a visit to Germany to celebrate 927 years of the existence of  Bramsche.  

Next year looks even busier with visitors from Roncq due to arrive in April 2023,  a visit back to Roncq in May, closely followed by a  visit in July 2023 from our friends in Bramsche.    To find out more about the activities of the Town Twinning Association and how you can get involved with this active and friendly group see below.

Todmorden Town Twinning Association

 Todmorden’s relationship with our Twin Towns of Bramsche and Roncq is greatly enhanced and supported by the Todmorden Town Twinning Association (TTTA).

Town twinning helps people from different countries to exchange regular visits. Members stay in each others homes, experience each others way of life and lasting friendships form between families and guests.

The TTTA helps by arranging the group travel.  They introduce Todmorden people to their hosts in our two twin towns.  They also arrange places to stay, events and other things to do for groups visiting Todmorden.

Formed in 1978, the TTTA continues to have successful annual exchange visits with groups of between 30 and 60 people. This makes them the envy of Calderdale and many larger towns/cities in the UK.

The TTTA’s  success depends on getting new people to join, especially younger families, who live in or around the Todmorden area.  Local groups are also encouraged  to take part, such as football teams, music groups, Judo and Tennis clubs and more.

The TTTA prefer members to go on trips to either Bramsche or Roncq (or both!), as well as be hosts for visitors when they come here.  Do not worry if you are unable to put visitors up, you can easily help out in other ways.   The TTTA is as flexible as possible and aim to “twin” people together by age and interests.

TTTA is made up of:

  • An elected Chairman;
  • a Management Committee;
  • and a social sub-committee who work together for both Bramsche and Roncq.
  • There is a secretary for Bramsche and one for Roncq.
  • An AGM is held in February each year to elect officers.
  • TTTA is bound by a written constitution.
