What is the Hucklow & Parisot Twinning Association?

Our twinning association has a founding membership of over 70 adults and children. We aim to develop friendship and understanding between people in and around the two twinned villages, through events in our village and visits to Parisot. Several of us have already visited and fallen for Parisot, its people and the surrounding area. A few of us speak some French, others none or very little, yet we are all committed to welcoming our friends from Parisot and developing the friendship.

Parisot is a farming village of about 500 people in the Tarn et Garonne department in the beautiful Aveyron region of France. It is set in a scenic and interesting area of limestone villages and bastide towns.

We invite everybody, adults, children, single people, families, of all ages, to join in, including enthusiasts from neighbouring hamlets and villages.
