German visitors get a full tour of Gigg Lane

The town of Bury is twinned with various towns across the globe, towns such as Angouleme in South Western France, Datong in China and Tulle – also in France.  

Over the last four days, a group of visitors from Schorndorf, a medieval town east of Stuttgart in Germany and another twin town of Bury, have been in the area visiting in and around Bury.  

On Monday afternoon, following a Mayoral reception at the Town Hall, our German visitors arrived at Gigg Lane for the full tour of the ground.

Following an hours visit to the Shakers, where they witnessed the final of a local school five a side competition, the Germans headed off to a formal dinner with the Lord Mayor of Bury full of facts and figures about the club and with a collection of Souvenirs to take back to Schorndorf.
