|Next Stop Glasgow - WOA AGM January 26th 2019|
The 2019 AGM is being held in the Golden Jubilee Conference Hotel, Clydebank, Glasgow.
Whilst the formal AGM business will take place during the day on Saturday 26th January, arrangements have been made for Members attending and traveling from afar to make a weekend of the trip.
For those staying at the Golden Jubilee Hotel on the Friday, a Burns themed evening and buffet meal is planned, reflecting the Anniversary of the birth of ‘Scotland’s Bard’. On the Saturday evening a Dinner and Ceilidh will take place at the hotel to enjoy some Scottish hospitality together.
Special rates have been negotiated for our group and a number of rooms have been reserved at the hotel, but if you have not already registered an interest in attending this event and plan to stay at this hotel, then please do so now by sending your contact details to to Ian Buchanan (see link below)
Further information is being sent those who have registered an interest.
