Cunard Line's 151,400 tonne, flagship Queen Mary 2
Tomorrow, Thursday 12th October 2011, Harry Cotterill, President & Managing Director, Dream Designs Colchester and his father Brian Cotterill will leave Colchester to journey to Southampton, before boarding Cunard Line's flagship, Queen Mary 2 the following day.
Before boarding Queen Mary 2 for their 2 night voyage aboard the vessel, they plan to visit the City of Southampton to view the anchor of the much loved Queen Elizabeth 2, which was recently donated to the City of Southampton from Dubai, where the vessel is still presently berthed.
The City of Southampton were kind enough to re-name one of the main roads within the town centre 'QE2 Mile' and have created a beautiful location where the anchor has been placed.
Whilst in Southampton it is also hoped that Harry Cotterill, President & Managing Director, Dream Designs Colchester and his father Brian Cotterill, will have the opportunity to briefly meet with Peter Shanks, President & Managing Director, Cunard Line.
In November 2010, whilst on board Queen Mary 2, Harry Cotterill, President & Managing Director, Dream Designs Colchester was invited to the navigation bridge, where he was given the opportunity to meet with Commodore Bernard Warner and officially present his drawing of Queen Mary 2 to him personally.
