Twinning

Welcome to the
City of Hereford Twinning Association

The CITY OF HEREFORD TWINNING ASSOCIATION (HTA) was constituted in 1987 with the aim of promoting international friendship and understanding and of fostering the mutual exchanges at all levels between the peoples of the twinned towns. Each year the MAYOR OF HEREFORD is invited to be President of the Association.

Hereford has been twinned with Dillenburg in Germany since 1989 and with Vierzon in France since 1994.

Over the years the Twinning Association has maintained lively and interesting exchanges with many groups in Dillenburg and in Vierzon which have contributed to a mutual understanding of each other’s cultures.

In addition, the Association has, often ‘behind the scenes’, provided encouragement and support to groups in Hereford who were keen to establish links with similar groups in the partner towns.

In summer and winter each year the Association publishes a newsletter for its members with reports of exchanges, events and visits between our twin towns.

After much lobbying by the Twinning Association, Hereford now has its own Twinning signs — paid for by Hereford City Council — on the main approach roads into Hereford.

The Twinning Association hold a variety of social events for their members throughout the year and organise regular exchange visits with Hereford’s twin towns.
