GLOSLINKS is the Twinning Organisation which maintains the links between Gloucester and its European Twin Towns of Trier (Germany), Metz (France) and Gouda (Holland). We also have a close link to the St Ann Society which nurtures the twinning between Gloucester and St Ann in Jamaica.
Our aims are friendship, cultural exchange, understanding and learning.
We are active in promoting these links by visits (exchange, personal and cultural).
We arrange exchange visits mainly for adults to each town every third year and receive a visit from one of our twin towns every year. We usually stay with families and later they come to Gloucester to stay with us. Many of our members have made great friendships with friends abroad and visit them frequently.
We have a programme of social events throughout the year and welcome new members from all sections of the Gloucester community. There are no age limits and membership requires no knowledge of foreign languages.
