Aberystwyth-Kronberg Twinning

Twinning Activities

AKT has meetings every 1-2 months to which all members are invited. It elects a committee every year at its annual general meeting to run the organisation for the next 12 months. AKT aims to build up the profile of twinning in various ways:  
  • We provide financial assistance to clubs and societies who wish to develop twinning links with similar clubs and societies in Kronberg.
  • We provide assistance to individuals, usually school pupils from the Aberystwyth area, who are going on organised exchanges to Kronberg.
  • We attend public events in Aberystwyth to provide information about twinning and to encourage people to join AKT.
  • We have fund-raising social events for our members such as dinners quiz evenings and occasionally, a celebration of Fasching, the German carnival.
  • Our main exchange event every year is the annual Christmas Market held every year in December in Kronberg.
As of June 2021, the covid situation in Germany still precludes any town twinning exchanges. AKT will resume twinning exchanges when it is safe to do so. Meetings in Aberystwyth will restart at the end of the month. If you want to join in one of the meetings, please contact the secretary.
