Welcome to the Website of the Bath - Alkmaar Twinning Association!
Welkom op de website van de Bath - Alkmaar Twinning Association!
Our purpose is to encourage, promote and foster social and working relationships, and friendship and respect, between the people of Bath in England and its twin city, Alkmaar in the Netherlands.
We undertake a range of activities to enrich the links between our two cities, encouraging exchange visits & joint initatives by schools, sports clubs, civic and arts organisations and businesses. A particular focus is helping children who may have no other such opportunity, to experience a different country first-hand. Through our regular social activities we act as meeting point for all Dutch people living in and around Bath, and for anyone locally who has an interest in the Netherlands.
Why Bath - Alkmaar? The story behind the Bath - Alkmaar link is inspiring (click here for the full story). We are currently celebrating 70 years of friendship, working with our Dutch equivalent, the Alkmaars Uitwisselings Comité. More information on the programme of activities can be found on the 'Alkmaar 70' page.
Support our work: We are entirely voluntary, so by signing up as a member supporter for a small annual fee you can help sustain this vibrant international relationship, support our exchange activities, and become more fully involved in our regular social events (click here for a membership application form). You can also make a donation to support our activities.
