AS mentioned in last week's column, we are gearing up for our next public meeting on Monday, April 26, at the McAlpine.

This will be an opportunity for members, their guests and anyone else with an interest in the Trust to join in an evening of celebrations for the achievements of the last 12 months.

The format of the evening will be markedly different to our previous meetings, although there will still be an opportunity to ask those questions which you feel haven't been answered yet.

Our plans include guest speakers, a quiz to find the smartest anorak as well as an "extra" to mark That Was The Year That Was.

The evening starts at 7.30pm in the main Banqueting Suite. Entry is free but there will be an opportunity to spend a pound or two in search of some top-notch raffle prizes!

So, come and join us as we celebrate a remarkable year since the dark days of contemplating life without a club to support.
