BREMEN. The centenary celebrations of the Weserbund took place in December. A ceremonial act was held in Bremen town hall followed by a businessmen’s meeting in the ‘Grasmarkt’, where Uwe Beckmeyer, a retired parliamentary state secretary (3rd from right), and Tim Cordssen-Ryglewski, Chairman of the Weserbund and State Councillor for Science and Ports (3rd from left) discussed the future of the Weser. The Weserbund was set up in Bremen and Minden in 1921. Among other things, this association is committed to maintaining and overseeing the country-side either side of the river as well as improving the water quality.
