Swindon Salzgitter Twinning Association has had an eventful year with the Queen’s Diamond Jubilee year being celebrated in both towns.
Association chairman Roger Gower said the royal river pageant in the pouring rain was a talking point on a visit to Salzgitter in June by association members. “Our German hosts had watched it on TV and were planning to watch all the other events. We were pleased to present Gunther Heinisch, head of twinning activities for Salzgitter,with a commemorative book about the Queen’s reign.
“We continued the royal theme when we toured the ancestral home of the Welf family. The museum there emphasises the six British Hanovarian monarchs who had strong family ties with the Welf family.”
The group also toured the railway museum in Salzgitter.
