Warning: This post was published more than 13 years ago.
I keep old posts on the site because sometimes it's interesting to read old content. Not everything that is old is bad. Also, I think people might be interested to track how my views have changed over time: for example, how my strident teenage views have mellowed and matured!
But given the age of this post, please bear in mind:
- My views might have changed in the 13 years since I wrote this post.
- This post might use language in ways which I would now consider inappropriate or offensive.
- Factual information might be outdated.
- Links might be broken; embedded material might not appear properly.
Many thanks for your understanding.
I may have already told you how the Durham University Rag Week (DRAG) was officially banned by the Home Secretary following a break-IN at a maximum security prison, and the suspension of a lecturer’s car from one of the many bridges in Durham. Therefore, DRAG was replaced by DUCK – Durham University Charity Komittee.
I have just received an email detailing their latest fundraising stunt…10,000 bright yellow rubber ducks are to be released from Elvet Bridge (with the aid of 3 JCBs) and raced down the River Weir. It’s happening around 12.30 on 2nd November, so if you’re in the area, go and have a look, it should be good.
That’s the end of Tilly’s Travel Tips for Today, see you again soon!
