A few nay-sayers might have something to comment on that.

Not silly, just puzzling that there should be demand for Orthodox prayers in Welsh and German. I wasn't aware those countries had notable Orthodox communities, but evidently they're large enough for some to find their way to Bristol. But then, there's an Indian Orthodox Church (rather different sort of Orthodox I expect) in Pilning, a not particularly large village near the Severn Bridge.

Probably not that different.

Went to a Russian Orthodox wedding in Bristol once. Wonderful occasion. I assume at the same place.

I've occasionally seen what I assume to be an Orthodox type chappie in Llandysul, I don't think he lives here, but it must be nearby.  As the Teifi valley is very Welsh speaking, I guess Orthodox in Cymraeg is a thing.

It would appear that Fr. Vladimir is local.

I thought it might have been someone I was occasionally in contact with, but he is elsewhere in Cymru.

Neither. It's near Cornhill, between Aberchirder and Portsoy, in Scotlandshire.Banffshire

Ah. Thanks.

It seems I've reached a new low in wordplay. My intention was to name places that might be related to the thorax (Cheasterfield, sounds like Hearts). But, as they say: "If you have to explain it..."

Luckily, I know where my coat is.

I've passed this a few times now, yesterday I pulled over and took a photo.

There is another shortly after with the same measurements.  :facepalm:

You'd have thought they might have got at least one of the conversions correct.

It's not clear whether women in bikinis are also required to wear a t-shirt while swimming. Common sense would say not, but as it specifically mentions this for men, it kind of suggests women don't get the swimming exemption, but that seems too silly.

I think it means a bikini should be covered at all times, even in the pool, but a one piece does not require an additional t-shirt.
