Dollar Twinning

Share this post:

For over 40 years, Dollar has had a lively association with our twin town in France – La Ville-aux-Dames, near Tours in the Loire valley. On alternate years, we have either visited there, staying with host families or we have welcomed them to our homes in Dollar. Programmes of excursions, entertainments, dances and lots of food and drink were arranged, and many lasting friendships formed. 

Sadly, numbers have dwindled here as Twinning members have aged and not been replaced by younger people and families. So much so that Dollar Twinning will be wound up at the AGM, which is due shortly, unless they can recruit new members

In La Ville-aux-Dames, there is still plenty of interest in maintaining the link – in fact they are currently urging anyone to visit for their annual St Andrew’s Day dinner dance! (They enjoy all the usual ceilidh dances!).

If anyone is interested in helping Dollar Twinning to survive, or to hear more, please get in touch with Alison Sangster at alison.sangster41@gmail.com. You can visit the Facebook page here or the website here for more information and photos of past activities.
