signing the charter


smlbussignIn 2002 there were exchanges between Bussières and the Kellets to formalise the twinning arrangements. The twinning Charter was signed by the Chairmen of both Over Kellet and Nether Kellet Parish Councils and by officials of the Twinning Associations. There was another signing ceremony in France (see photo).



smltwinningBussières is a village of 1500 inhabitants 60km west of Lyons, in the hills between the valleys of the Rhône and the Loire. It lies just south of the Beaujolais wine region and, like Over Kellet, is in an area of scenic and historic interest.

Exchange visits between our countries are now made in alternate years and the Twinning Association has been successful in obtaining grants from the EC to assist with the expenses of such visits. We aim to improve knowledge and understanding of another EU community and to involve the young people of the Kellets in these exchanges since they are the future of the Association. We hold regular social activities and everyone is welcome to attend these.
