Alison confirmed that the football posts that ACT have contributed towards for land on Churchill way are in the process of being purchased and erected.

Burns Supper: Thanks to all those non members of ACT who helped with decorating the Hall, preparation of the food and numerous other tasks that contributed to a very enjoyable evening. If we did not have these extra volunteers ACT would find it very difficult to hold events.
• Having pre–supper drinks in the Guyzance room worked well. It also kept the main Hall warm as the front doors were not being constantly opened.

• Garry playing pipes at front door as people arrived added to the occasion.
