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.
