Friends of MBTA



The MBTA Friends Group is a lively, friendly group of people interested in supporting our links with Bagnères and in participating in our social activities and visits. Denise McCanna (Friends’ Co-ordinator) liaises regularly with members, now numbering around 40 individuals and keeps them notified of upcoming events. A seasonal Newsletter keeps them informed of recent happenings and plans for the future. Past editions may be accessed here.


Everyone pays an annual sub to be a Member; currently this is £10 pp pa and the figure is reviewed at the AGM which normally takes place in November. We normally combine the AGM with an invitation to stay on for a curry, and to date this has proved a popular formula!


All members are eligible to take part in any organised visits MBTA arranges and, of course, in all social events.
Our MBTA Friends are a valued and indispensable element of our twinning association. Without them and the funds they raise to support our activities we simply could not exist.


For all details of how to become a Friend, please contact Denise McCanna at or on 07788 446874.
