Looking back at St Andrews from the end of the pier.
Every now and then I get an email from my alma mater the University of St Andrews. This week I got this one about the forthcoming General Council meeting:
During the last few years, the General Council (whose members include all graduates of the University) has met furth of St Andrews for its statutory winter meetings in order to encourage members who would find it difficult to come to St Andrews to interest themselves in the Councilâ€™s business. This yearâ€™s meeting will be held in … Dundee
So, to encourage members who would find it difficult to come to St Andrews they are meeting in Dundee.
Which is 12 miles from St Andrews! And 12 miles further north at that.
