Kincardine O’Neil Twinning Association will be celebrating its tenth anniversary over the weekend of July 22 this summer.

About 50 people from Thun St Martin in the north-east of France would like to come over to celebrate 10 years since the twinning charter was signed by the two villages.

But at present there is not enough space to house all the visitors for the trip.

As a result, the twinning association are appealing for people to come forward and volunteer any space they may have in their homes.

Doing so will allow all the people who wish so to visit.

Bill Ashcroft from the association said: “The French visit is always a great fun and all the participants enjoy themselves.”A variety of events are being organised for the weekend in July including a ceilidh with dancing to the Flying Pieman band and a BBQ with a Punch and Judy show.

There will also be a Mummers Play.

At the moment the Association does not have enough accommodation for all the French visitors and some may have to be turned away.

Mr Ashcroft added: “It is not necessary to be able to speak French in order to be a host as many of the visitors speak some English and want to improve and some are completely fluent in English.

“If anyone in the Kincardine O’Neil or surrounding area is interested in getting involved with hosting some French visitors they should come to a meeting in the village school at 7.30pm on March 17.
