Visitors to the website will know that a visit of bridge players to Brunswick has been planned for a long time. We finally made it there at the beginning of June, and the photo shows bridge players from Bath and Brunswick, together with members of the DEG attending a reception in Schloss Richmond hosted by Frau Bürgermeisterin Antonelli. The reception was later attended by a group of young students of German from a High School in Omaha, Nebraska. This town is one of Brunswick’s nine twin and sister cities, and its representatives were signing an official agreement on mutual co-operation and support with the President of the DEG, Paul Kavanagh.
Our visit was a great success, with a full programme of bridge, some sight-seeing and some travelling to towns near Brunswick. We were also able to meet our friends from the online book club, and help with the preparations for Braunschweig International, a festival celebrating all the different national communities living and working in Brunswick. Our thanks go to all involved in the preparations for our visit.
