Ger­man link plan

The Galloway News - - INTIMATION­S -

Moves are un­der way to es­tab­lish an in­for­mal cul­tural ex­change be­tween Gatehouse of Fleet and north Ger­man town Neubokel.

The ini­tia­tive springs from work done by for­mer Gatehouse Pri­mary School head­mas­ter Howard McLean, who is a Ger­man speaker.

Gatehouse Com­mu­nity Coun­cil chair­per­son Sue Best said: “In 2005 some Ger­man fam­i­lies came over with chil­dren of pri­mary school age to visit our chil­dren.

“Then the cur­rent mayor of Neubokel got in touch to in­form Mr McLean that he was com­ing to Gal­loway.

“It was then we thought it would be a good idea to res­ur­rect our lit­tle friend­ship.”
