A wave of updates has swept across the Official Collingwood 2010 Website, and I hope I won’t forget to point anything of importance out in this entry.

First things first, though, because I know how many of you are truly dedicated aficionados of audio books!

MAX ADAMS’ “COLLINGWOOD – NORTHUMBERLAND’s HEART OF OAK” IS NOW AVAILABLE AS AN AUDIO BOOK!

And what’s more: it’s for free!

“Collingwood – Northumberland’s Heart of Oak” has been split into 12 individual parts and is available from the official website (please click the link above). And please don’t let the audio book keep you from buying the print edition! An illustrated bicentenary edition of the printed book is available from Newcastle Libraries, Tyne Bridge Publishing.

Also new on the website is an addition that I find very important, and which I’d like to recommend especially to the teachers and homeschoolers among you:

EDUCATION

Teaching materials, lessons plans and resources for you to educate (yourself, your students or young ones) on all things Collingwood. His portrayal here on this blog is, of course, biased in favour of Collingwood. I’m not blind to his shortcomings, though, and had we ever met, it might have ended in a huge argument and broken plates… well. Here you’ll find everything for you and others to make up their own mind.

For further research, you can find all relevant (and other) information on Collingwood here:

COLLINGWOOD

His life, his achievements, his fights – it’s all here, with a very helpful timeline. Perfect for those who don’t want to read all the books!

And of course, always keep an eye on

THE DIARY

where you’ll find all scheduled events. Check back regularly to see if anything’s on that you might be interested in.

Upcoming events are:

Tue 13th – Sun 18th July 2010

‘Heroes, Past and Present’ Festival: flower and music festival
(assoc. – they have adopted Collingwood as a hero past)

And an event close to all our hearts:

Sat 7th- Tue 10th August 2010

Tallships Hartlepool 2010
(assoc.)

What else? Ah, you’ll have to wait for a little while, this year’s Trafalgar Day promises to prove some goodies for us Collingwoodies!

And I have some updates as well. I wish my days had 48 hours, then I could get more done…
