11 members of the Rotary Club of Kevelaer visited us in Bury St Edmunds on the weekend of 21st May. This was the first time the two clubs had been able to meet face to face , our freindship having been forged during the Covid pandemic. The weekend was filled with many activities which brought the clubs together including a Fish and Chip Supper, Disco Party, Tour of the town, Tour of Lavenham and a visit to Fullers Mill Garden.
President Elect Alan Chadwick mastermined the weekend and he is pictured exchanging club banners with the Kevelaer incoming presdient Michael Tijssen incoming president of the Kevelaer club., during a dinner at the Farmers Club.
Bury St Edmunds has a long association with the town of Kevelaer on the Western side of Germany whe they became twin towns in 1981. Since then many visits have taken place between the two towns, but this is the first time that the two Rotary Clubs have met up formally.
