A raffle raised money for the association with everyone receiving a present. Letter from Braunschweig   The year is drawing to a close and it is once again time for Christmas, with all its festivities, beautiful decoration and delicious homemade biscuits and stollen, Christmas carols and time of reflection. Braunschweig’s city is full of people from various parts of the country visiting the well-known Christmas market which dates back to the year 1505 and is one of the most impressive ones in Northern Germany with altogether 148 stalls which can be admired. We are all excited what 2018 will bring as we are all waiting for our new government. It seems hard to find a new coalition having similar ideas and aims and being able to work together in harmony and respect. Wishing you all a Merry Christmas and a peaceful and happy new year, Katrin Landsmann and the DEG   Visit of students from H-B Schule 5 engineering students from the Heinrich-Büssing-Schule  in Braunschweig will be visiting Bath City College at the end of January. They will spend 4 weeks in Bath and placements are to be arranged with local engineering firms. Paul Kavanagh and Jens Müller will be with them for the first week. Did you know? Within a 20 mile radius of Bath there are no fewer than 8 towns with a German twin town: Niedersachsen: Shepton Mallet           Misburg Trowbridge                 Leer Bradford upon Avon    Norden Baden-Württemberg:              Frome             Murrhardt Devizes           Waiblingen Calne               Emingen Rheinland-Pfalz:  Wells              Bad Dürkheim Bayern: Chippenham     Friedberg I hope to contact the twinning associations in these towns to learn more about their twinning activities  and report back in the next issue.
