About Worthing Twinning
Worthing’s first town twinning took place in 1997, when the Borough formed a link with four small towns in the Elztal Region, situated in the Black Forest in southern Germany.
Later in the same year, we established a link with the Pays des Olonne on the west coast of France, where again our twinning partnership was with a network of smaller communities. This was on 17th October 1998. A new charter was signed in August 2022 to bring the three communes under one mayor, Les Sables d’Olonne
Since then, under the patronage and presidency of The Worshipful the Mayor of Worthing, the members of the WTA have worked with friends in both areas, encouraging cultural and social visits. We have a regular programme of meetings of the WTA in Worthing and endeavour to raise the profile of twinning at events throughout the Worthing and nearby areas.
Recent Trips & Destinations
Back in June we entertained eighteen guests from Les Sables d’Olonne for five days, exploring Sussex and our local cuisine and without exception they all went home delighted with the visit.
In July, twenty five of us enjoyed an fascinating trip to Waldkirch and the Black Forest. Most stayed with German hosts and a few in an excellent local hotel, Zum Storchen.
