Welcome to the Wiveliscombe & District Twinning Assocation website. Wiveliscombe has been twinned with Le Lion d'Angers in the Maine et Loire region of France for over 30 years. What started as an exchange between students from Kingsmead and the Secondary School in Le Lion d'Angers grew into a close friendship between the two towns, involving people of all ages from both sides of the channel.
Once every 2 years, families, couples and individuals visit France for a 5 day trip, being hosted by a family in the picturesque town of Le Lion d'Angers. During every other year, the French visit Somerset, when families in Wivey and the surrounding area host our French guests.
