Help Us Build Anglo-German Friendships

By Published September 06, 2018

NEW members are wanted for a group which aims to develop friendships and cultural Anglo-German relations between Middlesbrough and Oberhausen.

The Middlesbrough-Oberhausen Town Twinning (MOTT) group’s most recent meet-up took place at Middlesbrough Town Hall and involved a small reception with tea and cake.

Middlesbrough’s Deputy Mayor Cllr Charlie Rooney also presented the German side of the partnership with a gift of a picture showing Middlesbrough landmarks.

MOTT raises money for different local charities each year and this year made a contribution to Middlesbrough-based domestic violence charity My Sister’s Place.

Sabine Otten, Deputy Chair of MOTT, said: “I would like to thank the city of Middlesbrough for the reception we always enjoy coming here. It is very special to have this town-twinning with Middlesbrough and we’ve had a wonderful week.”

During the visit the German flag was raised above the town hall to welcome the visitors from Oberhausen.

MOTT is looking for new members and anyone interested in getting involved in the organisation should contact This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it..
