Hold up! Before you read on, please read this...

This post was published more than 14 years ago

I keep old posts on the site because I often enjoy reading old content on other people's sites. Not everything that is old is bad. It can be interesting to see how 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 very well have changed in the 14 years since I wrote this post. I have written some very silly things over the years, many of which I find pretty embarrassing today.
  • This post might use language in ways which I would now consider highly inappropriate or offensive.
  • Factual information might be outdated.
  • Links might be broken; embedded material might not appear properly.

Okay. Consider yourself duly warned. Read on...

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!
