Chelmsford is twinned with Backnang in Germany and Annonay in France. 

The Town Twinning Association is a voluntary organisation set-up to provide link with its twinned towns.

We can help you with:

  • advice and guidance to making travel plans and accommodation in our twin towns
  • talks to groups and societies about our twin towns
  • searches for similar families and groups who wish to arrange exchanges
  • assistance with planning your visit with your hosts in Annonay and Backnang
  • a limited translation service for correspondence
  • work experience 'across the borders'

In June 2010 we celebrated the 10th Anniversary of the twinning with Annonay and the 20th Anniversary of the twinning with Backnang in Chelmsford (click here to view our 2010 celebrations).

In 2012 the CTTA celebrated the Olympics (click here to view).
