About twice a month we meet to speak German and chat informally about
holidays, family, the news,etc. There’s no set topic and people are at
but very supportive. We aim for it to be relaxed and friendly.
You will get an email
reminder if you’re on our contacts list but check the
site here in case there are any
last minute cancellations.
We are usually upstairs but if you can’t find us after a good look
around, ask the bar

SOMMERSPAZIERGANG, AUGUST 2019
As it’s a long time from the May AGM and talk till the September meeting, Sue Moos is organising a German Club walk like we did last year. It will start around 2pm on Saturday, 3th August and all members, families and friends are invited. We will start at the Car Park at Sudeley Castle, Winchcombe, Gloucestershire GL54 5JD and walk for about an hour and a half, after which we can have a drink and snack at the snack bar by the entrance.
We will contact the Castle so that we can use their facilities. I would recommend sturdy shoes. Don’t forget, if you don’t wish to walk you can join us there later, say 3:30, for a sociable chat. We shall still walk in showery or drizzly weather but in the event of persistent heavy rain, we shall meet at the White Hart Inn, Winchcombe for a drink and social chat instead. I’ll send timings for that at a later date.
To get to the Car Park, go down Vineyard Street from the Main Street and follow the signs for Sudeley Castle and park in the large free car park at the end of the drive.
If you’re travelling from Cheltenham by bus, the W1 seems to depart at 13:30 from Pitville St (stop 16) getting in at the war memorial at 13:50.
Also the 606:
I can send out a request on email if you would like a lift. Also maybe let me know if you’re coming by bus so that we can wait for you.
Thanks to Sue Moos for organising the walk.
Wir drücken die Daumen für gutes Wetter!

ANGLO-GERMAN WALKS 2019
If you like both walking and speaking German, as well as meeting German speaking people, you could think about going on one of Neil McDonald's Anglo-German walks.
Between 6 and 16 native English and German speakers will walk and speak in each other's languages.
The holidays take place in 2019 in Weißensee, Nordschwarzwald, Bayerischer Wald and Bad Schandau as well as four centres in the UK: Forest of Dean, Wales, Berwick-on-Tweed and Western Lakes. Each holiday lasts 6 days, 7 nights B&B and evening meal and consists of an 10-13 mile walk on 5 of the days.
I have more details about the 2019 programme and a brochure. (Greg)
