** For some 13 may be an unlucky number but it was a happy one on February 28 when members and friends were able once more to celebrate Rosenmontag together.
Venue was the Klosterhaus restaurant in Quakers Friars. The site is the remains of a Dominican friary, Blackfriars, which was established by Maurice de Gaunt in the early 13th century.

The Hannover Room was an appropriate exclusive salon for the latest in the revived social programme as restrictions continued to be eased after the Covid-19 lockdowns and group event controls.
Rosenmontag party spirit
Last July saw a Reunion Dinner followed up in November, also at the refurbished Eastfield Inn, Henleaze, by a dinner and skittles evening then the traditional German Christmas Market lunch in December.
Chair Ann Kennard, appropriately be-hatted for the occasion
Chair Ann Kennard provided authenticity by wearing a traditional hat in red-and-white, – the Cologne/Koeln colours – worn traditionally at all the so-called ‘Sitzungen’ of the Karnevalsgesellschaften.
The Rosenmontag dinner also provided a happily enjoyable launch for the social programme in the 75th anniversary year of the Bristol-Hannover twinning.
