Wirksworth extends links to Italy Wirksworth, 11 July 2017

A group of Italian and French young people took part in an international youth conference which also included Anthony Gell students. 

They were hosted by Mount Cook Centre on Porter Lane, Middleton.  WTA Co-chair Judie Taylor said: 'We were delighted to support the conference which brings together young people from Wirksworth and our twin town in France and we were really thrilled that we were also able to welcome young people from Varallo in Italy.' Varallo is twinned with Die and this event followed a visit by several members of the WTA Committee to Varallo in April, as part of a wider international celebration of Twinning.  We are hoping to use the twinning network to build on our existing links with Die and Frankenau to develop friendship with Varallo. During the visit to Italy, Committee members experienced the stunning scenery and marvellous architecture of the Piedmont region and used the occasion to catch up with friends from our existing twinning partnerships, who also attended the gathering.

We welcome members from Wirksworth and the surrounding area and villages. If you'd like to know more, please go to the membership page and if you're thinking about joining us, go here to find out how.

Wirksworth is twinned with Die in France and Frankenau in Germany. For the latest news and plans, go to News and Events
