|Bridgwater-Czech/Slovak Twinning 1992|
At Bridgwater International we are now planning our programme for 2012. Would you like to be part of it? If so now is the time to contact us to see how we can help.
Bridgwater International has been operating International link programmes since 1992 when Bridgwater became the first British town to twin with a Czech/Slovak town (Uherske Hradiste) after the Velvet Revolution. It is because of this history that we have the experience and contacts to devise and develop programmes for all sorts of groups and individuals from School residentials to Sporting tours, Musical projects, Civic contacts and Community link ups.

Originally we were the BRIDGWATER CZECH SLOVAK FRIENDSHIP SOCIETY but our contacts have expanded from the Czech & Slovak Republics to include a swathe of European partner towns ranging through Italy and the former Yugoslavia up to Poland and Lithuania.

Bridgwater International also specialises in Football tours- which are very popular and therefore easy to organise. In recent years we have taken Somerset football teams to 10 countries at all different levels from schoolboy to sunday league.

Particularly popular are the ' Residentials' that we organise. This allows groups to explore the country of their choice with a select theme. For Czech visitors to the UK we employ the YHA network of Youth Hostels which are located in some of the most scenic parts of the country . Especially popular are our 'Round Britain' tours which we undertake by minibus with local drivers/guides.

Bridgwater international is happy to seek out any potential partner group to suit your own interests. 'Community Links' are of particular value for understanding how other towns get things done. In recent years we have taken Youth Workers from Shropshire to Moravia and Moravian Family centre workers to Sedgemoor, Trades Unionists to Prague, Botanists to Somerset and we once even organised a wedding in the Czech capital!
