Membership

Local support is vital to the well-being of twinning.  Without this, twinning would not progress positively towards greater understanding between our Twinned Towns.

In this web site you will find information which indicates what twinning stands for and what we try to achieve.  We hope you will want to be an active member of our team, in working towards the implementation of our aims and objectives.  By becoming involved, we hope you will discover a whole new aspect of life which is both invigorating and worthwhile.

Individual Membership costs £5 per annum. Please download and complete an application form and email it – or return it by post – to the Membership Secretary. You can pay by cheque or by BACS transfer. You will find the details on the form. For your convenience, the form can be found in both .pdf and .docx format.

What Does HGTA Offer to Members?

Members of our Twinning Association (HGTA) enjoy many benefits. For example:

  • group visits to our twin towns;
  • a programme of social events throughout the year, including themed dinners and an annual garden party;
  • being entertained by dancers, choirs, musicians and other performers who travel between all the towns, joining in local events. In recent years we have enjoyed the spectacular Flag Throwers of Gubbio and the internationally renowned Höhefeld Fanfarenzug marching band from Wertheim.
  • the opportunity to widen their knowledge of different cultures by hosting visitors from our twin towns;
  • participating in local festivities like the Summer Galas, the Huntingdon Carnival and the Christmas Lights switch-on.
