Re: Donald Campbell's restored Bluebird in museum home row

those who want to see it run could be out of pocket. You mean like what happened to people who booked accommodation in Coniston this year? The public wants to see K7 run and we are prepared to provide that opportunity. Alternatively, we just say we're not doing it and in so doing we deny everyone t...

Re: Donald Campbell's restored Bluebird in museum home row

Bill are you saying that the Ruskin Trustees have agreed to K7 running on Bute in 2019 or is it a decision you have taken unilaterally? I am sure many folk will want to be sure holiday arrangements plane flights etc will not be wasted? There is now a much fuller understanding of where everyone stan...

Re: Visit to North Shields- model makers.

That tea was Bob on Gordon, it definitely got my seal of approval[.] Not sure you should have let everyone know you’re a closet ginger nut lover though lol Cheers Wayne First our Coniston gig is cancelled, then we have a world of silliness to wade through and now there's a ginger biscuit revolt tak...

Re: Donald Campbell's restored Bluebird in museum home row

I have never seen any evidence that DC stated that boat and Donald say together. If that was the case, why did the RN spend 2 weeks with the full backing of both the Campbell Family and Leo Villa attempting to recover his body after the tragedy. It makes no sense. This is an anecdote that I believe...

Re: Donald Campbell's restored Bluebird in museum home row

Hi Bill has the silence been deafening from the museum or is there any news?
You are not allowed to ask too many questions and there will be more to follow but keep some time free end of July - we're going back to Bute. we'll issue a formal statement in due course.

Re: Visit to North Shields- model makers.

Expensive to fuel a car to get here though £90 or there abouts i’d say, pending on cars fuel consumption. From what I saw today they got good value. They've been modelling for years something they had never laid hands or eyes upon. I suspect that much was learned today and much gained for the model...

Thanks ever so much Bill & the team!
It was great having you guys over today. Enjoyed every minute - and not a ginger biscuit in sight.

Cheers, everyone.

Re: Donald Campbell's restored Bluebird in museum home row

Donald Campbell is known to have said “Donald and boat stay together.” Returning Bluebird to Coniston where Campbell is buried will ensure, as best we can, that those wishes are fulfilled. Indeed. He is known to have said it in Dumbelyung as folks tried to persuade him to leave for Blighty as a rec...
