On November 20, 2016 we visited the Gehrden Tower and the Gehrden Tower Guard. We were warmly welcomed there and could look at all the details of the tower during an expert guided tour. We thank the Gehrden Tower Guard for this with a triple “Vivat Hildesia!”
On September 24, we cast bronze at our monthly meeting in Barienrode. All interested people could practice the whole day to melt the bronze, to make molds and finally to do the casting.
While we waited for our barbecue for refreshment after the work was done, our members Bernd and Sebastian showed us their garments and equipment their representations of the 14th century. Afterwards we let the sunny late summer day end with nice conversations, delicious food and refreshing drinks.
On August 28th we participated in the fire department parade in Barianrode in best weather. Beside the many fire brigades from near and far we attracted attention with our costumes and could enrich the procession. Afterwards we made many contacts on the square and in the festival hall and ended the sunny day at our herald Wiebke Bensch with cool drinks, cake and nice conversations.
