Walkers’ first visit to Husum
Seven (?proud) walkers from Kidderminster’s Stride & Stroll group will be visiting Husum in May, the first return trip of this new link with Husum’s walking group. Three of their members pioneered the initial visit to Kidderminster last April. Hiking around our area highlighted the striking geographical contrasts between the twin towns and their surrounds. Our hills, woods full of bluebells, and the red soil were all a source of delight to our visitors – perhaps we take this beauty on our doorstep too much for granted! - but I’m sure that Husum town and it’s landscape will be equally appreciated by the Stride & Strollers. An excellent programme has been prepared for our group, six of whom have never been before: they are in for a treat!
Forest Quilters and Storm Quilters Exhibition
Forest Quilters is twinned with Storm Quilters in Husum. Storm Quilters have invited us to participate in their Quilt exhibition in the Rathaus, the Town hall, in Husum in September 2019.
The exhibition opens on September 7th and members of Forest Quilters have been invited to attend. 8 members of Forest Quilters together with 1 husband will be making their way to Husum for this event. We will be staying with members of Storm Quilters & look forward to exploring Husum on foot. We are taking quilts that have been made by members of Forest Quilters & these will be hung in the Rathaus together with quilts made by members of Storm Quilters.
We are very excited at meeting with our friends in Husum again.
