Bath’s twinning arrangement with Alkmaar is the oldest of its foreign twinning links, forming in 1947, and Bath Dolphin & DAW (De Alkmaarse Wateratten) have been two of the mainstays of that arrangement. The exchange with DAW has been in existence since 1948 and is the longest running exchange in England.

We are delighted that once again Bath Dolphin will be hosting our friends from the Netherlands, Alkmaar DAW, in 2020.

The trip will take place over the Easter weekend, with our guests arriving the evening of Thursday 9th April 2020 and leaving Tuesday 14th April 2020. 

We need members to host our friends from DAW when they visit over the Easter weekend. If you would like to host and take part in the exchange, please complete the application form
