Twinning is emerging from hibernation! We were delighted to welcome to Kidderminster a delegation from Husum: Uwe Schmitz (Buergermeister)}, Martin Kindle (Buergervorsteher), Senators Horst Bauer and Norbert Pfeiffer plus our old friends Rainer Maass (chair of Husum’s Twinning Association and also ex-Buergermeister) and his wife Eva.
After an exhausting day's travelling (via Munich!) the group reassembled on Friday morning at the Town Hall for a Mayoral reception. The civic group met with the new Town Clerk (now called CEO, but still our vice-president!) Lee Jakeman, who briefed them on the plans for the town hall redevelopment.
