From Aug 2006 - Nov 2013 WeDig provided a live forum for diggers & fans of Vindolanda. It has now been mothballed and will be maintained as a live archive.

Here you will find preserved 7 years of conversation, photos, & knowledge about a site many people love. Vindolanda gets under the skin. (Figuratively and literally as a volunteer excavator!) It's a place you remember, filled with people you remember!

Thanks for 7 great years!

Fundraising Possibility
Dear all

Every summer the amateur orchestra that I play principal flute and Jo plays 2nd violin (Crosby Symphony Orchestra) with has a charity concert at the Philharmonic Hall in Liverpool. A few years ago they came up with an idea to help charities and organisations to raise some cash through a special ticket-selling scheme. Basically, for every adult ticket sold at 10 the Trust would get 5 and for every child ticket at 5 the Trust would get 3, all at no cost to the Trust.

The concert this year is at 2 pm on Sunday 29th June (day after the Friends Open Evening) and our programme includes Copland's Fanfare for a Common Man, Rachmaninov Piano Concerto No 2 with Martin Roscoe (its the one they used in the film Brief Encounter, if that helps!) and Holst's Planets Suite (you know, I Vow to Thee My Country and all that!). Seats are unreserved unless you want to be posh and book a box, but they cost more and because of overheads from the Philharmonic Hall, don't result in any extra cash for the charities.

Both Andy and Patricia have given me the 'go-ahead' to invite you all to come to the concert - you've got plenty of time to get to Liverpool after the Open Evening! We ARE Capital of Culture this year, after all!

The Gang!..
Looks like you had slightly better weather than in March, Alex!

There was one on over the weekend, so you've missed that. But fear not - there is another one this Sunday, 8.05 on BBC1! I've just seen it advertised in my TV magazine.
Get watching!
Oh and a bit of Monty Python might come in useful too... ;)
