  1. Terrific and worthwhile but fit time does it start and how long is it predicted to last?

    • 7.30 tae 8.30pm … like it says in the article ( cue eyes to the sky while innocently whistling smiley ).

  2. where can I find the publication??

    • Hello Sarah – the lecture will be on Aberdeen Voice after it is given by Neil Cooney. The link at the bottom of the article provides further information. Hope this helps
