      None that I’ve spotted so far, Alison, but I will keep my eye out for festivities north of the border and try to keep you up to speed.

    Thanks for reply. It appears we get forgotten up here! Perhaps something to coincide with Book festival in August. It would be nice to meet and greet Some of you. Will be ever hopeful.
