In April 2008 a party of 46 villagers travelled to Moyenneville for a weekend and enjoyed a number of educational and historical visits along with some wonderful French dining experiences.
In July 2009 we welcomed 50 visitors to Willingham. This included a small party from the Czech Republic and preliminary discussions took place to explore the possibilities of forming a three way relationship. The weekend was a great success and enjoyed good weather and plans continued to develop this idea.
In July 2010 the first full three way visit was hosted in Moyenneville France. All three countries mingled, talked, partied and enjoyed the experience of being together. An excellent programme of events and cultural opportunities was planned by our Moyenneville hosts.
In July 2011 following our first exploratory trip the previous Autumn, a much larger group visited Postrelmov along with our French friends. The Czech people were welcoming to all our families and showed themselves to be excellent hosts. The formal signing agreement took place over the weekend along with visits to local amenities and attractions.
In July 2012 Willingham hosted approximately 50 people from Moyenneville and Postrelmov..There were visits to Lincoln castle, cathedral and the historic council chamber. On Saturday night a very lively hog roast and disco was held utilising the village hall and Half Moon pub where all three nationalities joined in and thoroughly enjoyed the dancing and refreshments. The weekend was enjoyed by all and considered a great success.
In 2013 we will, together with a party from Postrelmov visit Moyenneville. The French always give us a great weekend with interesting visits and the excellent food has always been a particular highlight of our visits. Our other focus for 2013 is to raise money for when we will be the host village again in 2015 and several fund raising events are planned.
