Antony Exbrayat - French Intern

Antony Exbrayat - French Intern Summer 2019

The Town Council has welcomed French undergraduate Antony Exbrayat from Wetherby’s twin town of Privas. 
Here for a month-long work experience placement, Antony has written to introduce himself and explain what he hopes to get from his time in Wetherby. 
“My name is Antony Exbrayat, I am 19 and I live in Privas in France.
Privas is a little town south of Lyon which contains about 9000 inhabitants. Just as Wetherby, it is a rural and quiet place, which has become well known thanks to its speciality “Le Marron Glacé” (a sweet confectionary treat). In 1992, Privas and Wetherby became twin towns, and now foster strong relationships.
I am in Wetherby for a month’s work experience in the Town Hall. I found this work placement thanks to an acquaintance who had contact with the twining association in Privas. She introduced me to Cindy Bentley, Chair of the Wetherby Twinning Association, and the Town Hall, who accepted my request and hired me as intern. Thanks to Cindy I have also found a family which is able to provide accommodation for me during this period.
I am hoping to gain many things from this journey. First of all, I am happy to participate in the maintenance of the links between our two towns. Furthermore, I am here to discover the British culture, the customs, the work environment etc…
It is always interesting to see how things happen in a foreign country.
Above all, what I wanted to do was improve my level of English and there is no better way to do that than a total immersion.
I am really happy to be here and am looking forward to carrying on this wonderful experience.”

Antony is staying in Wetherby from 19th May to 18th June and will be working in the Town Hall and assisting with the maintenance of some of the Town Council’s open green spaces.
