The Calderdale - Strakonice Twinning Association (CSTA) was set up in 1993.
This was to foster links between the people of Calderdale (Yorkshire, England) and those of the Strakonice Region (Czech Republic).
The association has branches in both districts where it is run by members. The committees meet regularly to organise visits between the two areas and occasional social and fund-raising events. The visits are usually eligible for European Union grants towards travelling expenses and also administrative and entertaining expenses.
The Czech local association arranges a full programme of visits and social events for the visitors from Calderdale. They will live with families whilst they are there.
The Calderdale association arranges similar visits and events when there is a visit from Strakonice to Calderdale.
Why not get involved?
Membership of the Calderdale association is open to anyone living in, or connected with, Calderdale. Also welcomed are people with an interest in the Strakonice District or the Czech Republic.
New members are very welcome.
