This Group, which is unique in the UK, was formed in 1965 to encourage friendship between the women of Maidenhead and of its twinned towns of St Cloud (near Paris),  Bad Godesberg (near Bonn),  Frascati (near Rome) and Kortrijk in Belgium, each of  which has a similar Group of its own.   Together these Groups make up the European Friendship Circle.  Salzburg joined the Circle in 2004. Every year, about 12 of our members visit another Group, and in return we host about 12 members from one of the others.

Our members meet on the 2nd Wednesday of the month at the United Reformed Church, West Street, 2.30 – 4.00 pm.

It is not necessary to be a linguist  to join, just to have a sincere wish to know more about Europe and our fellow European women.

Annual subscription £35.00.

Please call our President,  Anne Home,  on 01753 642078 for further details.
