SG Visit programme a real tempter

The programme for our forthcoming visit to Schwäbisch Gmünd and the Remstal Garden Show in May is really tempting with something for everyone and lots of activities for the young ones amongst us, lots to see and do, great hosts to show us around and have a good 'natter' with, over fabulous food and drink as well as a day adventure along the Remstal Valley and exploratory visits to Schorndorf and Waiblingen too, ...... and on top of all that, the great bonus is that the weather will be positively 'balmy,'
(I promise !) what more could you ask for?
The whole experience begins with flights to Frankfurt on 28th May and for the next few days encompasses a full programme of events and sight seeing and also includes an official welcome by Oberbürgermeister (Lord Mayor) Richard Arnold and the re-installation of the English red phone box specially organised and gifted by the members of the Barnsley Society some years ago.

Take a good look at the programme shown below ................ it's intentionally not too busy, to allow time to relax over a beer or wine, a coffee or ice cream and take in the atmosphere, reflect on the day and enjoy the whole experience. The opportunity to meet lovely people from Schwäbisch Gmünd is guaranteed, many of the over 300 members of the Verein Städtepartnerschaft there are eager to host and get to know people from their twin town in Barnsley. Friends from their twin town of Faenza in Italy will also be arriving at the same time as us, so it will be a truly international event to enjoy.
