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.
