Welcome to the North Hykeham Town Twinning Association
If you live or work in North Hykeham or the surrounding area, and you are interested in twinning, (especially with German families!!), then NHTTA is for you. We normally have exchange visits annually, with organised parties travelling to and from our twin town of Denzlingen in alternate years. Denzlingen is in the South West corner of Germany just a few miles from the attractive Cathedral City of Freiburg. Do not be put off if you are unable to accommodate German visitors in your home here - you'll still receive a warm welcome over in Denzlingen, (and of course at our regular monthly meetings here in North Hykeham). We also try to arrange social functions during the year and there's an opportunity to become involved in the wider aspects of twinning with communities in a variety of countries through our affiliation to the Lincolnshire Twinning Federation. Feel free to explore the site and don't forget to check out the "links" page for connections to other sites of interest.
