Bristol Hannover Council chairperson Dr Ann Kennard recently received a message from the German Ambassador stating: “the President of the Federal Republic of Germany has decided to confer upon Dr Kennard the Cross of the Order of Merit of the Federal Republic of Germany.”
This is a great honour for Ann and very much deserved given her tireless work on behalf of the twinning with Hannover and Anglo German relations in general. The award was made by Ambassador Peter Wittig at his residence in London on July 11th in the presence of 26 of Ann’s family members and friends. The Ambassador gave a warm and complimentary speech, and Ann responded with thanks and some memorable moments in her relationship with Germany.
On behalf of the BHC executive and all our members and friends we would like to send Ann our warmest congratulations.
