Show Business

This was a hugely successful trip for the Twinning Association. The weather stayed dry for the four days. A visit to the historic spa town with indulgence at the famous Bettys Tea Rooms which opened in 1919. An excursion to York where a large group visited the Yorvik Viking Centre, which stands on the site where a Viking city stood nearly 1000 years ago.

Thank you to Julie for all her hard work putting the trip together.

Visit by Liederbach

Definitely a long, but very enjoyable day for all who came along. The Twinning Wine Bar was in full flow. In addition, we served tea, coffee, and snacks; ran a mobile Tombola, and the ‘Kiddie’s Corner’ with sweets, marshmallow sticks and activities to keep the little ones busy.

Thanks to all involved on the day – Clive, Sandra, Stuart, Vivienne, Debbie, John, Avril, Barbara, Alec, Lesley & John, and not forgetting our genuine onion seller, Sébastien.

Everyone had a fantastic weekend with our guests from Liederbach.

On Saturday we had a trip to Milestones Museum in Basingstoke and some sightseeing in Winchester during the afternoon. Sunday was spent at Highcliffe Castle followed by a lovely lunch at the Hermitage Hotel on Bournemouth seafront. Speeches from both Clive and Eva, and a presentation to Clive of a beautiful sculpture. Finished off with a stroll along the beach to work off all those calories!

Thanks to those committee members that put the programme together, and to Clive for being ‘Duty Driver’ all weekend.
