Stansted Mountfitchet is twined with the French town of Rungis.

You can learn more about Rungis by clicking on the link below for their information leaflet or on this link to the Regional Council’s website. You can get an English translation if your French doesn’t stretch to translating it yourself.

Host Families Needed

Following the recent twinning of Stansted with the town of Rungis in France, the Stansted Twinning Committee is now looking for volunteers to accommodate or to chaperone our French visitors. This could include accompanying them on visits to local places of interest. It is not essential to be a French speaker.

If you are interested in registering as a host or chaperone, please contact the Twinning Committee, or come along to our Cheese & Wine event on Friday 25th January 2019 at the Stansted Day Centre, Crafton Green, 8pm to find out more.
