We are Twyford Together

Twyford Together is a group of volunteers who love our village, Twyford Berkshire. We just want to make it even better! We put on events, such as the Fun Run (pictured) or bring business and community together.

The range of people who volunteer is diverse. Some have lived in the village their entire lives. Others are relative newcomers. Some run local businesses, while others commute into London. What we have in common is a willingness to give up our time occasionally to manage or organise village events or help people who need it.

Would you like to make a difference? We always welcome new volunteers (mums, dads, DofE students, retired persons, working persons … everyone!) to bring fresh ideas and help with our community events, projects and fundraising activities. Check out some of the things we’ve achieved together over the years with your help.
