Sturry, Fordwich and District / Aire-Sur-La-Lys Twinning Association


Do you enjoy visiting France and wish to know more about the French way of life? If so, why not join in the social and cultural activities provided by the Twinning Association. The main objective of the Association is to bring together the communities of Sturry, Fordwich and District, and that of Aire, a medieval town a short distance from Calais. The highlight of each year is the exchange visit between families in Sturry, Fordwich and Aire which has led to longstanding friendships.


This year our main exchange visit will take place on Saturday 8th May, when a party from Aire will come to England. Our activities will include a visit to Wildwood to see the local animals we share with northern France, notably the wild boar, lunch with local families and a social evening at Junior Kings School. If you would like to take part in the dayís events and host a visiting family from Aire, please contact the Associationís secretary, Alan Holden, at
