HMS Collingwood

It is always a privilege to be invited to attend the very moving Remembrance Service at HMS Collingwood on November 11th when the Base remembers particularly its own colleagues lost to war in the last year.

However, also on this day when the ceremony is over donations are presented to local good causes from funds raised at the HMS Collingwood Open Day held each summer. As always at the open day, the historic Field Gun run was held and this year, thanks to some new attractions and good weather the event raised more than ever. We were fortunate to have a cheque for £1,000 presented by Commodore Tim Lowe.
