The museum's founder Edward Bramah and Southwark Chamber of Commerce were hosting a reception for visitors from Southwark's twin town of Langenhagen just outside Hanover in Germany.

The visitors included teachers who visited Coburg Primary School in Camberwell and businessmen involved in a number of relationship-building activities with the Chamber of Commerce.

"This visit is an example of Southwark's commitment to developing meaningful international partnerships that can provide real benefits to Southwark and its residents," said Cllr Kyriacou. "Sharing good practice from Southwark with our international counterparts, and learning from their experiences, helps the council to deliver services that are sensitive and appropriate to local needs."
