At this we had the opportunity to chat to a lot of the members and also meet some of the Trust’s trustees. Everyone was really friendly and welcoming which was nice – even though we were officially staff helping out at the event, most of the members knew far more than us and were answering our questions as opposed to the other way around! As well as meeting people, it was a great chance to find out about the huge range of things the Trust has been up to in the past year.
