2012 promises to be a busy year for Twinners with several groups travelling between Kidderminster and Husum for visits to the twin towns.
The annual Crocus Festival in Husum on 23rd March will be attended by civic representatives from Kidderminster including the Carnival Queen, Jessica Homans, and her mother escorted by some Carnival committee members. Also in Husum from 22nd to 26th March will be a group of 12 drawn from several different Kidderminster churches - their ninth organised trip, but the first visit at crocus time instead of their usual Autumn exchange.
King Charles 1 School students will again be hosting guests from Theodore Storm Schule in April and making a return trip to Husum in autumn whilst Holy Trinity International School expect their first visitors from Husum this year. A group of gardeners and a golf team will be in Husum in June. Whilst members of Husum's orchestra are in Kidderminster in July, some KD8 Scouts will be joining their Husum exchange partners at a jamboree in Denmark. Husum quilters will be staying with Forest Quilter hosts in autumn.
The quilt exhibition previously on show in Husum's Town hall will be in the upper gallery of Kidderminster library throughout June, along with Twinning displays in the first floor glass cases and entrance foyer.
Any group or individual without a link to Husum and its people but wishing to find out more, or to visit our twin town (including travelling with some of the organised groups), should contact Hilary Boyle (01562 68535) or see www.kidderminster-husum-twinning.co.uk.
