About us


The Nelson Cork Lodge was founded in 2000, with the late Brian Whicheloe being the first Admiral. Alan Cowieson, a prominent Scottish "corky", gave great assistance to us and we are greatly in his debt for his continued enthusiastic support.

We now have around 50 members, and are keen to recruit more. Membership is not onerous (unless you become an officer, and even then it is really not that bad) and pretty cheap - life membership is 35 (we'll take Scottish notes if we really have to, but prefer proper money) and the only costs on top are dining fees, beer, raffles, etc., plus small change (a couple of pounds in coppers is ideal)  - the use for this will become clear if you join us.
