 The Leamington International Twinning Society (LITS) is a voluntary organisation, run by a committee elected by its members.  The Society organises the twinning of Royal Leamington Spa on behalf of the Town Council and receives funding accordingly.  The Society's objectives are to encourage a greater understanding of the value of international contacts and to foster friendship between the people of Royal Leamington Spa and people of our twin towns in France, Germany and the Netherlands.

Royal Leamington Spa was twinned with Sceaux, France, in 1969; Brühl, Germany in 1973; and Heemstede, Netherlands in 1987.  Royal Leamington Spa also  has friendship links with Leamington in Canada and Bo in Sierra Leone.  The Bo link was established to formally recognise the links that have been developed at a community level since the visit to that country by the then Mayor Councillor Bill Evans in 2001.


The Society promotes friendship and understanding by:-

  • Introducing organisations of similar interests to one another and supporting them in their friendship links.
  • Arranging annual exchange visits with its twin towns - visits which are usually led by the Town Mayor.
  • Supporting those organisations within the Town which wish to develop international links with other countries
  • A strong emphasis on young people appreciating the opportunities that arise from exchanges with our European neighbours

During these exchange visits, members of the visiting party stay with host families, an arrangement that is reciprocated when the host families visit the following year.   If you would like to know more about Town Twinning or become a member of LITS, you can do so by contacting the Membership Secretary.
