A farewell buffet and parting gifts

All too soon it was time for the Twinning Farewell Buffet which was held in the Cygnet Room of the Swan Hotel. Speeches reflected the wonderful friendships that have endured over the years and celebrated friendships that have just begun! At the end of the evening our visitors gave everyone in the room an individual painting, made by a member of a group of young adults, all with special educational needs and/or disabilities, who create their own art, run their own bakery and grow their own vegetables and herbs for their café in which they are the cooks and the waiters. They also live independently in a purpose-built block of apartments in Cuijk. We can learn some important lessons here!
