With the triangular partnership between Letchworth, Chagny and Wissen a regular pattern of visits developed. Every year each town visits one of the others and receives a visit from the third. The following year the visits are reversed.
Visits between Letchworth and the other towns usually last five days (Thursday to Monday or Friday to Tuesday) - the first and last days spent on travelling. Typically we depart Letchworth at 5:15 in the morning by coach to catch a ferry from Dover to Calais. We leave Calais and travel for 2 to 2 1/2 hours then break for lunch (approximately one hour) then another two hours travel and half an hour break for coffee and a final two hour drive to our destination. Arrival time is usually about 7 PM local time. During the weekend there will usually be two trips out by coach to places of interest and a social afternoon or evening. We are accommodated by families in the host town. You are expected to reciprocate when the other town visits Letchworth the following year. A visit to Letchworth follows a similar pattern.
