Dear Listeners and Friends

You are warmly invited to join the STN committee, volunteers, listeners and friends for our Annual General Meeting at the above address on Monday 27 February from 1.30pm to 4pm.

As well as conducting the formal business section of the meeting, we would like to take this opportunity to thank all of our volunteers and readers, our creative and technical experts, our funders and supporters. A big thank you also to our listeners who have continued to receive the mailed audio and access the STN via our website.  It has been a pleasure to meet many of you throughout the year.

We also hope to welcome Councillors, organisational representatives and colleagues who have supported the STN by raising awareness of our service across Sandwell.
