Plumergat et Meriadec, Brittany, France
The first seeds of twinning were originated by the people of Meriadec after a visit by junior footballers of the Redruth area (1988). A delegation of both communities met to discuss the viability of twinning (1992) and we were subsequently twinned officially with the signing of the charter in Redruth, May 1993 on Murdoch Day. The reciprocal signing of the charter took place in Plumergat in October (1994).
Subsequent to 1994 numerous exchange visits have taken place which were greatly enjoyed by all concerned. These trips enable the already close links with Cornwall and Brittany to be strengthened, allowing each other to broaden their horizons by learning about each others unique culture, heritage, language and forming long lasting friendships. Over past years Redruth Twinning Association have achieved many things such as finding work placements for students wishing to experience life in Cornwall and to extend their knowledge of our language and culture. This has been made possible through the auspices of hoteliers, equestrian and solicitors and shops.
