BUILDING A BOND: ICE President Roger Sainsbury's sampled a wee dram of Scottish hospitality on a visit to Glasgow and Edinburgh. Accompanied by his wife Susan, plus deputy secretary John Whitwell and his wife Nan, Sainsbury spent four days with the East of Scotland and the Glasgow & West of Scotland associations. The tour included site visits to the Dynamic Earth Centre under construction in Edinburgh and the M6 design, build finance and operate scheme.

Sainsbury spoke of the need to strengthen the bond between Great George Street and the local associations at the East of Scotland annual dinner. He said: 'It gives me great pleasure to make my first presidential visit to two such strong local associations. In the coming year nothing is going to be more important to me than the local associations. We succeed together or we blow down together.'

Sainsbury went on to speak of the need to build on the progress made by Sir Alan Cockshaw to improve the relationship between Great George Street and local associations.

More details of the President's visit to East and West of Scotland will appear next week.
