The Stevenage-Ingelheim-Autun Association
On the morning of Thursday 25th May 2017, a coach with twenty one members set off for Ingelheim, on arrival they where met by their hosts.
On Friday, an early start for the coach trip to Frankfurt with a guided tour and lunch at a local restaurant.
Saturday was a day of free time with the families when our hosts took us to various places. The traditional gala evening was held on the MS Rheus while cruising to Bacharach then back to Ingelheim. The usual speeches by the Mayors and Oberburgermeister when gifts were exchanged and the Pax Optima Rerum Cup was passed to Autun for safe keeping until our next meeting in 2018. A wonderful dinner was then served followed by dancing.
Sunday was free with the hosts followed by an excursion to Rheingau with a visit to the Kloster Eberbach. That evening a farewell supper was enjoyed at Bergrestaurant Waldeck, entertained by Mr Flower Power.
Monday morning at 8.00 am, after heartfelt good wishes had been exchanged with our friends, old and new, the coaches left on their way back to Autun and Stevenage.
