News from TAM


TAM is a voluntary organisation committed to encouraging links of all kinds – cultural, educational, sporting etc – with our twin town in Brittany, Hennebont, a historic market town of some 15,000 people near the city of Lorient, with which Mumbles has been twinned since 2004. (There are currently no active links with Kinsale, Ireland, which was twinned with Mumbles in 1992.)

   We are always looking out for new members: individuals, families, clubs or associations of all kinds. Subscriptions are very modest and members’ meetings are collaborative and informal. We welcome people of all ages, particularly families. Being a part of twinning is a wonderful way to improve language skills and share and understand a different culture and heritage.

   It costs just £6 a year to join (children up to 16 free). Contact membership secretary Sarah Lever: Or click here to go to the 'Contact us' page where there is a link to a membership form for you to download or print.
