Arrangements are now well in hand for the springtime visit of our friends from Grenay, Ruddington’s twin town in France. About 25 young people aged from 12 to 16 years of age, accompanied by adult chaperones including the Deputy Mayor of Grenay, will visit us from Thursday 10th May until Sunday 13th May.
During their time with us, the Twinning Sub-Committee will co-ordinate events and entertainment. However, the main thrust will be football. Our guests are members of youth football teams in France and at 10.30am on Saturday 12th May, they’ll be playing two matches at Jubilee Playing Fields against teams from Ruddington Colts.
One game will be an eight-a-side, under 13s affair and the other will be an 11-a-side, under 15s match. We’re really looking forward to this trip and we hope you’ll come along to watch the football and support Ruddington Colts.
If you are have any ideas about how to promote twinning further, or if you’re interested in helping out with twinning activities, please contact the Twinning Sub-Committee via the Parish Council Office.
