We’ve just said goodbye to our visitors from Bohars who were here over the Bank Holiday weekend. More about their visit will follow soon, so watch this space!
A group of around 18 of our friends from Bohars will soon be coming to visit us, from the 29th April to the 1st of May.
We’ve organised a full programme of events including a coach trip to Blists Hill & Ironbridge Gorge, a get-together at Huxley Village Hall, and a special dinner at The Piste in Tarporley on the Sunday.
We look forwards to seeing everyone!
A short excerpt from the auction:
Our friends in Bohars are holding a Fish & Chip supper on Saturday the 12th of November and we are planning to enjoy a fantastic French meal at the Crown Hotel in Tarporley at the same time; hopefully with a live video link between the two events. After the meal we will be holding an auction of delicious chocolate hedgehogs as well as other exciting paraphenalia and lots that money can’t buy!
Everyone in Tarporley and our surrounding villages is invited to the Twinning Association Autumn Meal & Auction.
It’s on Saturday November 12th 7:15pm at The Crown Hotel, Tarporley.
Tickets for the dinner cost £15 each and include a three course meal, a glass of wine and coffee. The starter will be a choice of soup or pate, The main course options are:
Coq au Vin
Tarte aux légumes (vegetarian)
And we’ll end up with a choice of Tarte au Citron or Crêpes!
During the meal we hope there’ll be a live video link to the annual Fish & Chip supper in our twin town of Bohars!
Tickets are available from the Crown Hotel and from Twinning committee members.
Plus after the meal an auction… of chocolate hedgehogs and other paraphenalia that you cannot buy in the shops! Auction starts around 9pm Free entry to the auction! Auctioneer: Mr Andrew Wallace
Come along and join us!

Today we held a barbeque for our newly-arrived young visitors from Bohars. They arrived on Saturday evening and are starting a week of activities and visits.
The venue and barbeque was very kindly provided by the Crown Hotel in Tarporley
Salads and desserts were provided by members of the Tarporley Twinning Association
Our visitors and their hosts
We’ll have a stall at the Tarporley Carnival, so come along and have a chat. We will also be selling a selection of homemade cakes!
Can you help?
This year even more than the usual number of families would like their children to visit Tarporley – the week beginning 20th August.
So at the moment we are particularly looking for extra families to host children coming over from Bohars for that week. If you would like to get involved and host a youngster (ages 12 to 16) in August then please get in touch via the website or phone David Dunning on 01829 781426.
There are prearranged activities for the children every day so your involvement is mostly to provide bed and breakfast and help them improve their English!
Next summer (2017) Tarporley children will be off to Bohars around the same time.
