Wonderful light show along the banks of the Thames thru London

This is ostensibly about an evening boat cruise along the River Thames from Westminster pier to the O2 Arena and back, it’s also about town twinning. Because the reason for my trip along the River Thames was to join visitors from our German twin town.

Surrey Heath is twinned with Sucy-en-Brie near Paris, and Bietigheim-Bissingen near Stuttgart in Germany.

Last week Surrey Heath entertained a small party of visitors from Bietigheim-Bissingen, including its mayor, Oberburgermeister Jürgen Kessing. While such visits foster cultural interchange and civic friendship, this visit included efforts to build business links between the boroughs. The visitors attended the Surrey Heath Business Breakfast and presentations on civic plans for Camberley. Links between Bietigheim-Bissingen and Surrey Heath are strong, with, for example, groups of walkers from Surrey Heath our German twin town in recent years, and church links too.

Ok, that’s the civic stuff, now my photo montage of the boat cruise [took many pictures, of which many were abject failures].
