The Collingwood Society are hosting their General Meeting 2013 on

Thursday 24 October 2013:  7.00pm
The Newcastle upon Tyne Trinity House
followed by
“Growing up with the Admiral”
a talk by Angus Collingwood-Cameron


Ok, it’s not Angus Collingwood-Cameron, but it’s a cute girl and there’s Bounce, so this is not a completely unrelated picture. So nyah!

Also quickly approaching is Trafalgar Day; please download the Collingwood Society’s programme here.

Talking about Trafalgar: have you seen this fantabuloustastic figurehead of Old Cuddy yet?!


A decidedly Fürst-Metternich-looking Old Cuddy can be yours for a measly $20,880…

More nautical gems can be found here; I’m particularly fond of the Emperor penguin.

There are *choices* for Trafalgar day! I’m not sure how to cope with this :)

Now that’s just awesome! This should become the official shirt for the Collingwood Society. :-D I’d so wear it! Great find :)

They have a constant two-for-the-price-of-one deal, so I also have this one http://www.mountainwarehouse.com/womens/tops/womens-t-shirts/keep-calm-and-go-for-a-walk-womens-tee-p8695.aspx?ism=0&cl=PURPLE – although I suppose to be really topical it should be ‘keep calm and eat an apple’ :)

(And of course someone has made a ‘keepcalm-o-matic’ website. http://www.keepcalm-o-matic.co.uk/p/keep-calm-and-eat-an-apple-416/ :) )

Ahaha! :-) Yes, it’s almost too much to handle!

I went to Morpeth in the end, as I’d done Tynemouth before. It was nice in a small-town sort of way – they had a whole class of children out – although quite quiet, but could have done with someone at the Town Hall to say ‘come in, sit down’ and so on.
I’ve got a copy of the speech but need to scan it – and someone was deputised to pinch programmes from Tynemouth for me!
