Welcome to the website which celebrates the twinning of our two towns - Briec de l'Odet (the 'Pays Glazik') in Brittany and Rhuthun in Wales.


Here you will find some information about the two towns, how they came to be twinned, and of the many visits which have taken place in each direction. And as we want more and more people to join in and enjoy the many benefits of the twinning, you can find out how to get involved yourself!



For those of you who have already enjoyed the company of our guests or hosts, we are always pleased to receive any photographs or notes which we could add to the site.
