Exeter City Council
We have now uploaded our report on Vespers «всенощная» in English and talk at Exeter Orthodox Church.
It was a beautiful service and we then went on the Globe Inn for good conversation over a nice meal
Our AGM was held on 19 October 2015
Although we have full-strength committee, plus one extra person who has volunteered to become an extra "co-opted" member. If you would also like become involved in the work of our committee please let us know. In any case, we would welcome your ideas about what we should be doing, or projects in which we can become involved.
Our new committee look forward to seeing you at our events, which are advertised here and in our regular newsletters.
Congratulations to John Street (manager at Exeter City Council responsible for twinning) who successfully completed the Great West Run on 18 October in time of 2:08. A great achievement! He did this in aid of the Lord Mayor of Exeter’s Charity. If you have not sponsored him but would like to do so, you can make a donation via the link:
We are on facebook, as Exeter Yaroslavl Twinning Association. Please give a "like" !
You can upload photographs or other twinning material directly to the page. We look forward to seeing your twinning photos or other interesting things.
В рамках программы деятельности Общества дружбы Ярославль-Эксетер 13-22 июля 2015 года состоялась ежегодная поездка ярославской делегации в город-побратим Эксетер (Великобритания).
Our friends have returned to Yaroslavl after a most happy visit. They have written an account of the visit.
Members will be interested to read the article Pavel Sergeev has written for us. Pavel is Conductor of the marvelleous Sobinov Children's Orchestra whose 2014 visit to Exeter was so successful. The Orchestra was a key feature of the 25 year's twinning celebration between Exeter and Yaroslavl. Pavel shares his thoughts and memories in his article. I am sure you that you enjoy reading it.
It was nice to see members at the European Flag Raising Ceremony on 9 May. On this occasion the Victory Flag was also raised, to mark 70 years since the end of World War II. It was also good to meet up with people from Exeter Twinning Circle, particularly as many of us are members of both associations. We had a few enquiries about twinnning with Yaroslavl and our committee will also consider how we can enhance our display for next year's event.
Exeter Yaroslavl Twinning Association members "Art Haven Group" would like to make contact with painters and other artists in Yaroslavl. Please let us know if you are an artist in Yaroslavl. "Art Haven Group" web site is at http://www.arthaven.co.uk/
We are looking forward to hearing from you. Please let us know if you are a painter or other graphic artist and would like to work with us.
This item has kindly been contributed by International Relations Division, Yaroslavl City Hall, together with this message:
As you probably know one of the most popular and interesting festivals in Russia of the end of winter – beginning of spring is Maslenitsa (the Pancake Week). We have prepared for Exeter the information letter about this festival and some pictures of Maslenitsa carnival in Yaroslavl in 2015.
