Twinning scheme is set to be popular yet again

After the successful visit to Forfar by a group from Chabanais in the summer of 2012, which marked the 20th anniversary of the twinning of the two towns, plans are now taking shape for a group from Forfar to visit Chabanais this summer.

Already over 20 people have expressed interest in taking part, some for the first time and others who have taken part in past exchange visits.

Participants will live with a French family for the duration of the visit and take part in a programme of visits prepared by the Twinning Committee in Chabanais.

Anyone interested in taking part in the visit, whether as an individual, couple or family, should contact Alice McLeod, on 01307 840520, or any Committee member for further details.

In the meantime Majestic Wines, Dundee are presenting a French Wine Tasting Evening on behalf of the Forfar Chabanais Twinning Association on Friday, February 22 in the Guide Hall, The Myre, Forfar at 8 p.m.

Further details and tickets are available from Derek Nisbet on 01307 468229.
