Rupert Follower's Meeting 2011 - contributed by Chris

Why's Rupert Bear at Warwick School?
He's never there as a rule

Once a year it's that day
When all his Followers come to play

200 friends from far and wide
Are there to be at Rupert's side

Tony, well he's no dunce
He has three jobs to do at once

Rupert and Friends

And then there's John who glides about
And though in charge he'll never shout

And in the corner another John
Who sits and checks what's going on Rupert's money is in the till
It's always checked by his friend Phil

Publications for our merry band
That's where Alan lends a hand
Rupert's library's safe and sound
That's Louise I'll be bound

More work's provided by two Mikes
That's the help that Rupert likes

Rupert's younger friends have Val and Eddie
You'll need to get your paintings ready

If you're a Follower that's just great
If not, join now - it's not too late!
The 28th Annual Meeting of the Followers of Rupert was held at Warwick School on August 27th 2011 and was great fun, a great day and a great success. Why not read all about it, find out how you can join in all the fun next year and look out for the special message from the Followers membership secretary.

Fairground Organs - contributed by Jane

It's that time of year again, when you suddenly feel compelled to travel into the countryside and stand in a muddy field, with wet feet, munching candyfloss to stare glassy-eyed at an endless stream of agricultural, military and other horribly functional vehicles making a slow, circuitous journey around a local farmer's 'spare' field! And do you know what? I love it!!

You can often hear a steam or vintage rally is happening nearby, long before you see the stalls and vehicles, thanks to an incredible invention ...Read the full article.
