No, the title does not refer to our ‘Go-Live’ event yesterday, which went off, as we’d expected, seamlessly. We are now all on the new site and you cannot see the old one. Many thanks to the two main ‘movers and shakers’ in this process, Sue Fielder of Open Sandwich, and Anthony Thornley of Blue Ant. You have probably by now sussed that you can comment directly on these posts through the site, rather than having to email the Secretaries. I would love your feedback, so please do comment if you have any ideas for improvements or can see any issues. I cannot promise, as they used to say on Cornflake packet competition entry forms “to enter into correspondence” with you, especially if this is taken up wholesale, but I will reply to any that I think are appropriate. You can, of course, still email the Trust using CambriaTrustSecretary@live.co.uk.
Meanwhile I loved this shot by Chairman Bruce Richardson of the chaotic scenes on the Thames during the Queen’s Diamond Jubilee Pageant of the flotilla, I am guessing taken from the deck of Cambria. You may not be able to see this in the reduced-size reproduction I have to use on the website, but the worried expressions on the faces of the two police boat guys at the bottom of the shot, and the guys in the pilot-cutter (bottom left) as they crane their necks every which way looking for possible problems between the mad-cap boaters speaks loudly of “What have we let ourselves in for now!???” Excellent. Nice, one Bruce.
