University marks links with Ghana
DIGNITARIES from Ghana attended an exhibition at the University of Plymouth to mark the city’s links with the West African nation.
The exhibition, attended by Ghanaian director of education Kofi Imbeah and his wife Nora, was one of many events organised for Plymouth’s first Ghana Week, celebrating the link between Plymouth and Sekondi-Takoradi, a city of 300,000 in Western Ghana.
The Link, as it is known, was set up in 2003 by a group of Plymouth people looking for something other than twinning, which for Plymouth was then exclusively with European cities.
Peter Reid, Link secretary, said the founders were looking for a town in a country at peace, able to communicate in English, easy to get to by air and the same size as Plymouth
