About Dudley

Our contact club in Britanny, France:
The Rotary Club of Dudley is pleased to be twinned with The Rotary Club of Brest Côte des Légendes in Britanny. Members and their partners from the two clubs make regular visits to the other, to enjoy home hospitality and to strengthen friendships. From time to time the clubs carry out joint community actions.

The Côte des Légendes club in also twinned with the St Ingbert Club in Saarland, Germany. To mark the Centenary of Rotary in 2005, members of the three clubs, their partners and families enjoyed a reunion weekend and celebration Dinner hosted by our French friends.
