NEWCASTLES OF THE WORLD Newsletter number 32 May-June 2020

Conference postponed until 2022

Those who had registered as delegates will already know that our planned biennial conference in Neuchâtel, Switzerland has been cancelled because of the coronavirus pandemic.

The Newcastles of the World executive board of mayors and mayoral representatives have held a “virtual” meeting. Because of the disappointment of having to cancel our 2020 conference, and the expressed willingness of Neuchâtel to continue to be the next host – it has been decided that we will next meet together in 2022, with Neuchâtel remaining as host. We thank the city of Neuchâtel for its continued support, and also the cities of Newcastle, Australia and Nové Zámky, Slovakia, who had both indicated their wish to be our host in 2022.

Here’s our updated calendar of events for 2020

The Georgians and the Geordies !

The Lord Mayor of Newcastle upon Tyne is hosting  a reception this Friday 11th in the civic centre Silver Gallery for the Ambassador of the Republic of Georgia in the UK and for a party of Georgian charity walkers who are doing a coast-to-coast walk to raise money for Georgian and UK charities including a contribution to Diabetes UK, the Lord Mayor’s charity.
The Ambassador, Tamar Beruchashvili (formerly Foreign Minister in the Georgian Government) will be visiting Newcastle University to explore opportunities for collaboration with higher education institutions in Georgia.
She will then be the guest of the Lord Mayor when she will speak of her hopes for strong links between the UK and Georgia and specifically between Newcastle upon Tyne and Akhaltsikhe.  Akhaltsikhe is the “Newcastle” in Georgia and is part of the Newcastles of the World group. And people from the Newcastle upon Tyne area are known as the “Geordies”.
Representatives from Newcastle upon Tyne have twice visited in Akhaltsikhe, in 2010 and more recently in 2017 when the party included eight students on the Newcastle University Folk and Traditional music course, who played at the annual cultural festival of Akhaltsikhe in their castle.
One of the champions of promoting links between Newcastle and Georgia is former Newcastle United footballer (and former Georgian national coach) Temuri Ketsbaia who – with his wife Katarina – keeps in touch with the activities of Newcastles of the World, and is supportive.
