THANK YOU - District Camp 2017
12/06/2017 By Helen Hannigan


A massive thank you to all who attended, assisted or organised this year’s District Camp! The weekend ran smoothly and was enjoyed by over 500 members of Liverpool North and this is down to the efforts of you all!

To the team which helped to organise the whole event  a huge thanks to you all for the work you put in at camp, from my point of view it went well despite the weather. Just to say thank you seems such a little thing but it is sincerely meant.

Tawd Vale staff have also praised us all as a district and want us to pass on their thanks for the respect shown not only to them but the Twad Vale site in general, especially the toilets which are normally left in a state – not by LND who have kept these clean and serviceable throughout the weekend! So thank you to all of you for this and upholding the LND name!

Keep your eyes peeled for photographs and videos being uploaded by the various groups. We are currently sifting through to upload as many as possible onto the website and Facebook. If you have any photo’s or videos you can send in, please email to stejay87@gmail.com or if possible send a drop box link to allow these to be downloaded.

Thanks again

Helen, LND DC

Cash your cash before it's too late!
15/02/2017 By Stephen James

Do you have subs not yet banked? Do you hold petty cash in your HQ?

Please read the below to ensure you don't risk any losses to your finances. (This also applies to your personal finances too!)

The new 12-sided £1 coin is being rolled out next month, and the current round version will stop being legal tender (and so won’t be accepted in shops) on 15 October. After that, if you still have any old £1 coins, you won’t be able to spend them. Slightly different for the old £5 notes, however it may be wise to get these banked before 5th May 2017!

See the article from Martins Money Saving Expert website for more information here.
