Today, I've created a new page on the website for information about local St Thomas community groups. I'd like to build this page up with info about more groups. If you'd like to have your group added to the page, please let me know by sending me an email through the Contact Us page.
St Thomas Festival - 2nd and 3rd September 2017
So, finally the St Thomas Festival 2017 website is here. Head over to find out more information about the St Thomas Festival and how to apply for a stall, to perform on a stage, to volunteer or to run an activity. We're so excited about this year's festival and hope you are too!
I think we were all shocked last night to discover that the Riverside Leisure Centre in St Thomas has been quite seriously damaged by fire and will be shut for at least several months to come. Luckily, everyone was evacuated and there were no serious injuries.
The Express & Echo have done an article looking back at the history of the Riverside Leisure Centre. Click here to read it.
It is with great sadness that I pass on the following message.
Exeter City Council’s lead for Communities and Culture, Cllr Paul Bull, passed away last night. Paul, 60, who was the councillor for St Thomas, had been battling cancer.
His wife Cllr Rachel Sutton, who serves on the council as lead for City Development and as Labour’s Group Deputy Leader, was by his side.
Labour Leader Pete Edwards said: “Paul was Mr Community. He was an extraordinary person – his kindness was unlimited. He was knowledgeable and talented in so many areas of life, but his real passion was serving the community here in Exeter. Simply put – this city is a better place for everything he did.
His passion, his beliefs and his commitment will carry on. All our thoughts are with Rachel and the family.”
It's great to be with you on our new website and this lovely blog.
I'm hoping to use this blog to keep everyone updated with things that are happening here in St Thomas, Exeter. If you have an event you'd like us to post in our event listings, please comment or send me a message through the Contact page.
Looking forward to hearing from you.
