German town twinners pay a visit to Haverhill
A coach full of visitors from Haverhill’s German twin town of Ehringshausen arrived here last Thursday evening (4) for the start of a three day stay in Suffolk.
The group was among the 47 visitors from Germany - some came by car - that stayed with their various hosts, including new Haverhill Mayor, Cllr Betty McLatchy (who greeted them at the bus station in her civic capacity).
The twinners arrived in England on Wednesday, visiting London for a tour of Westminster, organised by Haverhill MP Matthew Hancock’s PA, Helyn Dudley (Mr Hancock also greeted them at Westminster with a welcome speech) and Haverhill Twin Towns Association chairman, Elaine McManus, and a West End show before coming to Haverhill the next day after an overnight stay in a hotel.
While here they visited Anglesey Abbey on the Friday, Dullingham distillery on the Saturday, followed in the evening by a hog roast and dancing to the Maggerzines at Coupals Primary Academy , before returning home to Germany on Sunday.
