Exchange visits

Regular visits link the people of our towns

The next visit to Frankenberg had been planned for 1 - 4 October 2020. It was to be a visit for ALL-Comers, including everyone living in Manningtree  or surrounding areas, stretching from Colchester to Ipswich. Unfortunately due to the  Corona Crisis this trip had to be cancelled. Please keep an eye on the "events" page of the website for future exchange visits.

Celebrating together

Anglo-German dinner in Manningtree

As the Partnership is almost 50 years old, a big joint celebration was to have taken place in 2020 in Frankenberg and in 2021 in Manningtree. Sadly the Frankenberg celebration had to be cancelled. We trust that the 2021 celebration in Manningtree will go ahead!

A local social get-together

On this occasion members were enjoying genuine German cakes and live music!

The next social event is the afternoon tea

on 4 July.

Details above.

We look forward to seeing you there!
