SEAFORD TWINNERS RETURN FROM GERMANY FOR AGM
August 30 2016.
Seaford Twinners recently sent a ten-strong party to twin town Bönningstedt for a four-day stay and whilst there they were entertained to an alfresco meal with folk music at the town's museum.
They Twinners went on a waterborne tour of some of the most attractive areas of central Hamburg and visited a stud farm for Arab Horses.
The town put on a splendid meal for the visitors in its Montenegro restaurant. which was enlivened by the performance by the town's answer to Seaford's Rock and Jazz Orchestra, called the Golden Nuggets. The young performers, mainly on saxophones and guitars, gave a splendid programme of upbeat classics.
Some members used the visit as a springboard to visit other places in Germany and France after the weekend was over, some staying away for a month.
German visitors will be coming to Seaford next June and prospective hosts are already being sought for this long weekend. Please leave your details with Liz on 01323 896315.
Seaford Twinning Association held its last Plauschgruppe session before the AGM at the seafront Galley Cafe.
These meetings, to chat in German, are open to all, regardless of the level of spoken or understood German language. Visitors are invited to bring books, postcards and magazines to provide a focus for chat, or just their stories and recollections.
