Town twinning

Due to essential maintenance being carried out by Pay360, customers may experience online payment disruptions on Sunday July 5 between 4:30-6:30am and Tuesday July 7 between 6-7am. We apologise for any inconvenience caused.

Residents in Leicester and its outlying areas, including Birstall, Thurmaston and Wanlip in Charnwood, are to be asked to continue to follow stricter lockdown restrictions for at least two weeks, and non-essential shops will be closed. More information - including frequently asked questions and a postcode checker - can be found at www.charnwood.gov.uk/restrictions.

Town twinning started as a way of building strong community links across the European borders following the second world war. 

Today, twinning in Charnwood sees these ideas thriving and developing with nine local twinning associations fostering links with fourteen vibrantly differing towns across Europe and India.

The current twinning associations all have very active social lives, with regular meetings to plan activities, and fund raising events to support their hospitality and overseas trips.
