Groups from the two towns traditionally take it in turn to visit each other on alternate years, sometimes with Town Council representation. People normally stay with families in the other town, as arranged by the respective associations. Friendships are often established in this way, and informal visits often follow in addition to the ‘official’ occasions, for example to attend the October wine festival in Joigny.
In recent years, official visits have taken place as follows:
Joigny to Godalming, May 2008
Godalming to Joigny, October 2009
Joigny to Godalming, October 2010
Godalming to Joigny, October 2011
Joigny to Godalming, July 2012
Godalming to Joigny, October 2013
On Friday October 14 2016 a group of about 35 people will be travelling to Joigny on the occasion of the Fête de Vendanges. This will include members of the Fleur de Lys lady Morris Dancing group who will be entertaining the townspeople of Joigny.
