The perception of people who run the Trust used to be that we’re middle-to-old-aged, enjoy spending hours examining things like our rules and  constitution, and don’t get too excited at matches in case our blankets slip off our knees. I’m joking of course but I’ve heard it hinted a few times.
We do have to be very serious and concentrate hard on what we’re doing when we set our strategies, represent our members in the boardroom, and carry out our roles in such projects as the Stacey West Investment Bond.
When our priority is to help the club in fan engagement though, that’s when the fun starts. Literally, because being fan is all about enjoying every aspect that Lincoln City and supporting organisations like us have to offer.
For example we hold Man of the Match and Player of the Month polls on our Twitter site @trustinlcfc, and we recognise a deserving supporter as nominated by our members with our Fan of the Season award. In conjunction with Lincoln and District Football Supporters Club we reward your choices for Player of the Season and Young Player of the Season. Our on-line museum – – is increasingly popular.
Our RICT Stand in the Fan Village hosts local writers and their books – currently the Nannestad brothers with their History of the Imps ‘bible’ and Dick Chester, a former Lincoln City general manager with his biography.
We supply collectable programmes, and always have some decent freebies to give away, including RICT badges, key rings, pens, and hugely unhealthy sweets.
Early on this season we brought in Mr Twists, a brilliant balloon modeller, who put on a pre-match show for young and not-so-young fans, and a good pal of mine, Brian Hellyer, a professional magician, has performed hilariously at our stand. Both of them will be back later this season. We happily host other supporter group initiatives too like the admirable Chris Wray and his Imptoons products.  
No less important in our wish to be a dynamic Supporters Trust is to advise and inform fans about all things Lincoln City. We’re there in the Fan Village to answer questions and take in suggestions if people wish to ask them and give them. If you’re looking for lively conversation and some fun and laughter too, you know where to go.
