Junior Blue: Craig McWilliam

A huge thank you to all who have joined or renewed their membership in the last month. It has once again been a great show of support for the Trust. Before the draw we got to 161 Queens Trust members signed up. This was up on last years number which was 147 but still a little down on the 201 we had at this time 2 years ago.

We would love to get the membership back up to nearer or even over 200 so we have decided to run another promotion for a mystery prize which will be drawn from all 2018 and 2018/19 current members and all the new members that join before our next meeting which will be on the 17th August. So if you have not yet joined please do for your chance to win and help us get back to closer to 200 members.

Many thanks again to everyone and here is to an entertaining season ahead!
