There were garden games, held between showers, and fittingly, the most popular was the French game of boules.

A raffle and lucky dip were held to boost association funds.

Some members had just returned from a visit to Weil-am- Rhine, one of the two German twin towns.

Situated in the south-west corner of the country, this town borders Switzerland to the south and France to the west, on the other side of the River Rhine.

During the visit, there was a meet-up with members of the other German twin town, Trebbin, which is close to Berlin.

Bognor’s other twin town is the French town of St Maur-de Fosses, situated close to Paris.

German visits take place on a yearly basis, each town being hosts alternatively, while exchange visits to France take place on a separate basis.

Various other social events are held throughout the year, money raised from these help to pay for events when members of from the twin towns visit Bognor Regis
