What is the name of the city or town that you are reporting on?
How long have you lived there?
What activities, clubs and organizations would you recommend to newcomers to help them meet others?
I recommend joing a "fitness club". Joining a Gym is a good way of meeting new people; this mean that you would need to sign a contract, which in most cases automatically renews on a yearly basis.
In terms of religious, racial, economic and cultural diversity, are the people of this city or town diverse? Are they accepting of differences? Describe.
I think so. I have never come across any problems.
What are the main industries in this city? What types of career opportunities commonly exist? How do most people find new jobs?
There are not many openings around the surrounding areas. Carpenters, Printers would have a better chance of finding employment as opposed to white collar sectors.
In general, what are peoples' priorities in this city? For example, do lives revolve around work, family, socializing, sports, etc.?
That's one of the things that I enjoy here. People seem to enjoy their free time more. BBQ's, garden parties or just generally getting together over a few drinks. Their are lot's of council run activities, Karneval, Kirmes etc, which involve, basically having a good time. These activities are also children friendly.

If a friend of yours was thinking of moving to this city or town from far away, what other advice would you give them.
LEARN THE LANGUAGE!! Never move to a country where English is not the Mother tongue and expect it to be easy as English is the world language, because barriers will be faced on every corner. Ensure that you have checked out your qualifications, and determine their German equivalent. Accept culture differences and do not resist intergration.
