Plymouth conyinues to celebrate Antarctic Heroes

17 Jan

Plymouth continuses to celebrate theose explorers with connections to the city.  The Devon and Cornwall Polar Society will celebrate Scott’s birthday on 6/6/2013 in the Royal Corinthian Yacht Club. I think they are keen to hear from people who would like to help them celebrate. In the city The Corinthian Pub stands on the site of the Scott Family Brewery and nearby is Oaklands, the Scott family home where Scott was born–a suprisingly large site, then countrified, now in the centre of the city.

Sshckletons farewell dinner will be celebrated on 7/8/2013, one hundred years after Shackleton left |Millbay Docks on 8/8/1913. The celebrations will be in the Duke of Cornwall Hote.l Should be good!
