A weekend visit to our twin Club Louviers Le Neubourg
The Rotary Club of Banstead is twinned with Louviers Le Neubourg. typically we visit them one year and the next year they visit us
Over the weekend of 13- 15 May 2022, Banstead Rotarians and partners travelled to France to meet with their Rotarian friends from their twin club of Louviers Le Neubourg. The clubs have been twinned for over 50 years and it was the y this year, plus the chance to renew old friendships and for new members to make new ones!
Everyone met up at Louviers Golf Club for refreshments. It was obvious from the start that food would play a big part in the weekend! The Louviers club's President Eva lead the French group and Rotarian John Hannam lead the Banstead visiters. The weekend’s hospitality began that same evening at Dinner which celebrated the Anniversary of the clubs’ twinning.
There was a fascinating visit next day to a local medical museum. We went to have lunch at the Sargeant’s Mess Restaurant, followed by a dinner with Rotary host families.
So after many miles and meals we found ourselves back for Sunday lunch at Louviers Golf Club on our final day to discuss joint projects, including speeches and toasts. We will host a return trip to Banstead in 2023!
