About the Team

Your MBTA committee came into existence just over a year ago, There were no job applications – we were all just volunteers who had never met before. Our common ground was interest in France as a country, her people, language, way of life and culture. We were motivated by curiosity about how the brand-new twinning plans might work and a feeling that it might be fun to be involved.

 

Working to fulfil the brief prepared for us by MTC the committee exists to:

  • nurture our MBTA Friends’ group and encourage their involvement in activities
  • connect individuals and interest groups in Malvern with similar folk in Bagnères
  • foster educational links
  • promote international friendship
  • facilitate commercial links between the two towns

The committee is now working with colleagues in Bagnères to establish a cycle of activities and visits which will appeal to all sectors of the local populations. We are also drawing up our own plans for a number of social activities for MBTA Friends to take place through the year, culminating in a group visit to Bagnères during October 2017.
