Unterhaching 2019

In July 2019 we travelled to Unterhaching - Witney's twin town in Germany - for the 30th anniversary of the twinning partnership. Alongside Duncan Enright, the Mayor of Witney, plus contingents from Austria, France and Poland, we took part in the official ceremony plus several concerts at the beer festival
