The 2022-23 season is with us and it was great to be back amongst friends at the LNER stadium last Saturday.  The vibes before the game and in the ground were really positive and the team deserved their point and possibly all three at the final whistle. 
 Our Trust has the strapline “Supporting our Fans Our Club Our Community’. I’d probably need most of the sports pages to cover everything we do to fulfil those aims, but maybe for now you might like to be reminded of our role at our stand in the Fan Village every home game. 
 We have a ‘Prized Programmes’ service where we can source a special programme from the past for you. We have collectable ones too. Our 2022 charity partner is the Sincil Foodbank and we take in your donations for their admirable organiser Craig to collect in the week.
 We carry out a members’ Q and A with the results going in a future Imps programme, and, because everyone likes a freebie, we always have stuff to give away – currently RICT keyrings. 
 The newly published superb Imps History and Stats book by Donald and Ian Nannestad is available to browse through and buy. Handy tip – bring a bag because it weighs about three tons….or it seems like it. 
 We welcome guests including past heroes with the Former Players Association and at the Forest Green game we have an entertainer lined up from 1.30 to 2.30.
 The Supporters Board at the club do an excellent job at absorbing supporters’ issues but if you want a deep dive into Lincoln City matters direct into the boardroom come along to our ‘Saturday Surgery’. I’m your representative in there and am happy to discuss as much as I can within ethical and confidentiality bounds. 
 As well as the above and general advice about the Trust we’re a meeting place for conversations and good humour. Being a fan is about friendship and fellowship. For all our strategies and objectives those are probably the most important elements of supporting your club.
