Trips to Barking & Dagenham
Every two years, the Witten section of the club organises a trip to Barking & Dagenham, with the offer open to non-members as well.
We usually travel by coach or mini-bus (which then remains available for use in England) to our twin town where our English friends always look after us exceptionally well. The wide and varied programme includes excursions into the surrounding area and to London or social get-togethers in the evening, also thoughtfully arranged.
Then there is the "off-programme" free time, giving the visitors from Witten a chance to learn more about the Barking & Dagenham are and its people on a more informal basis.
Accommodation is in a local hotel or at Butler Court, the municipality's official guesthouse with its comfortable double rooms, a common room and a kitchen in which the famous English breakfast is served.
