Christmas Countdown

cathedral-west-front

With just 4 more sleeps until the big day all the little people are very excited. The rest of us are busy wrapping presents and hastily writing cards that we have forgotten.

Exeter like any other city in the country is filled with shoppers getting their last few presents or those annoying people that manage to do the whole lot in one day!!

I found this lovely old picture and thought it would be nice to share it with you all.

Happy Christmas to you all.

A Cold Snap..

img_2987

Well it has certainly been chilly here this last week with temperatures as low as -5. We are doing our best to keep our lads warm with long moves to the Midlands and Cumbria and then plenty of local moves with everyone seeming to want to move before Christmas.. We are doing our best to accommodate everyone we can and starting to wonder if we could possibly have a white Christmas this year?

Coca Cola truck comes to Exeter 23rd November.

coca-cola-truck

The famous Coca Cola truck is heading to Exeter after the tour, returning for a sixth year, kicked off on November 17.

The truck is visiting 44 stops nationwide in the run up to Christmas Day.

The famous truck lands in Exeter today, Wednesday, November 23, and will be parked in Bedford Square, Princesshay between 1pm and 9pm.

This year, Coca-Cola has added an extra sprinkling of magic with a new look truck tour experience.

At each stop, visitors can share the festive cheer and explore a special winter wonderland, before enjoying a 150ml can of Coca-Cola Classic, Coca-Cola Zero Sugar or Diet Coke.

The last time the festive truck stopped in Exeter was in 2013 and the city saw thousands of people line up to have their picture taken in front of it.

So after missing out for the past two years a Coca Cola spokesman explained how they choose what lucky city gets picked.

He said: “We always try to fit in visits to as many areas of the country as possible during the Christmas period as well as special Christmas shopping days and events in some city centres.

“After many months of planning we created the best route, which covers a large regional spread. Sixteen per cent of locations for this year’s tour are new and we’ve facilitated 57 per cent of the requests made this year by the public and local councils.”

Rhino Auction

The Great Big Rhino Project has come to an end with a successful charity auction that raised £123,000.

The summer-long project, organised by Paignton Zoo, saw a free public art trail of 40 life-size painted rhinos dotted around Exeter and the English Riviera. Thousands of people spent the summer searching out the dazzling artworks.
Now, 39 of the rhinos have been auctioned to raise money for rhino conservation.
The highlight of the evening came when a bidding war broke out over Hulk-O-Rhino, painted by Jenny Leonard and sponsored by Inter-Line Building Supplies. This eventually sold for £13,500 – ten times the price of some of the other rhinos.The final figure for the project surplus will be known once costs are taken into account. In 2013, the Great Gorillas Project made a surplus of £30,000.
Paignton Zoo’s Phil Knowling said: “We’d like to thank all our partners, artists and sponsors, everyone who followed the trail so enthusiastically and everyone who attended the auction. There was a great atmosphere and a real buzz. The figure is truly amazing!”
The grand charity auction took place at the Riviera International Conference Centre in Torquay on Thursday 3rd November. The surplus from the project will be used by Paignton Zoo to support Javan and Sumatran rhino conservation via Save the Rhino International.

Tar Barrels, Town Centre, Ottery St Mary, November 5

Thousands of people visit east Devon every Bonfire Night for one reason only – and that is to attend the annual tar barrels event.

If you haven’t been it is definitely a night you won’t forget because every November 5, the famous flaming tar barrels are carried through the streets of Ottery St Mary.

It is a longstanding tradition where between 8,000 to10,000 people attend to watch men, women and even children run fearlessly through the town carrying blazing barrels.

The event is organised by the carnival committee, with volunteers and fundraising money throughout the year in order to keep the tradition going.

This year the event will be held on Saturday, November 5, and like previous years Otter Nurseries Garden Centre will be opening its car park for visitors for the event.

The cost of parking this year will be £10 per car and £150 for 50+ coaches, £75 for 26 seaters and £40 for minibuses, with the money raised at the car park to be split between the Ottery Carnival Committee, which organises the event, and Otter Nurseries charity of the year.

Tar Barrels Ottery St Mary.

download-1 download

Every year on November 5th for reasons lost in antiquity, the Flaming Tar Barrels are carried through the streets of Ottery St Mary to the delight of thousands of townsfolk and visitors.

Ottery St. Mary is internationally renowned for its Tar Barrels, an old custom said to have originated in the 17th century, and which is held on November 5th each year. Each of Ottery’s central public houses sponsors a single barrel. In the weeks prior to the day of the event, November 5th, the barrels are soaked with tar. The barrels are lit outside each of the pubs in turn and once the flames begin to pour out, they are hoisted up onto local people’s backs and shoulders.

The streets and alleys around the pubs are packed with people, all eager to feel the lick of the barrels flame. Seventeen Barrels all in all are lit over the course of the evening.

In the afternoon and early evening there are women’s and boy’s barrels, but as the evening progresses the barrels get larger and by midnight they weigh at least 30 kilos. A great sense of camaraderie exists between the ‘Barrel Rollers’, despite the fact that they tussle constantly for supremacy of the barrel. In most cases, generations of the same family carry the barrels and take great pride in doing so. It perpetuates Ottery St Mary’s great sense of tradition, of time and of history.

Opinion differs as to the origin of this festival of fire, but the most widely accepted version is that it began as a pagan ritual that cleanses the streets of evil spirits.

It is an incredible night to remember – one of the biggest bonfires in the South West is ignited on the banks of the River Otter and behind it are the flashing neon’s of the annual fun fair.
