Twinning Association

The Stansted-Rungis Twinning Association meets regularly throughout the year to organise social events and visits between the communities of Rungis and Stansted Mountfitchet.

The association’s wine and cheese tastings, quiz nights and cultural evenings serve not only as fund raisers for twinning activities but are highlights of the village social calendar in their own right.

Look out for details of the association’s events on their Facebook page.

Alternatively email its Chair at or head to our documents section of this website and download the latest edition.


Events in 2023

Visit to Stansted by Members of the Rungis Youth Council – October 31-November 4

This week Stansted is laying out the welcome mat for a party of representatives from the Rungis Youth Council.

During their stay the 10 French teens will take in London and a trip to the House of Commons, where they will be joined by members of our own Youth Council.
