2018 - Tenth Anniversary

West Lothian's twinning with Grapevine Texas was established in 2008 so, in 2018 we are celebrating ten years of friendship and exchange visits between people of all ages and interests in the two communities.

An official delgation from Grapevine will visit West Lothian from 31 July to 6 August 2018 and we are arranging an interesting and informative programme of events. We hope that the delegates will be "Home Hosted"- if you would like to offer hospitality then please get in touch by emailing Secretary Jacqui Kerr.

At the same time we hope to host a delecation of young people from Grapevine.

In September a team of young golfers from West Lothian will visit Grapevine for the annual Gallagher Cup match, which alternates between Texas and West Lothian.
