2017 will be "big for tripe" says TMB chairman

Tripe Marketing Board chairman Sir Norman Wrassle has promised a bumper year for tripe as he unveiled the TMB's ambitious plans for the next twelve months whilst speaking at a meeting of the Westhaughton Ladies' Circle, earlier today.

Sir Norman: "Ambitious plans"
Sir Norman will be spending the next two months promoting tripe on a whistle-stop tour of the Caribbean, seeking out new markets for British tripe in readiness of the post-Brexit era.

Meanwhile, TMB Books (the board's publishing arm) is planning a follow-up to Forgotten Lancashire and Part of Cheshire and the Wirral, the 2012 publication which single-handedly revived the tripe industry in Lancashire.  Sir Norman could not confirm the title of the proposed follow-up, but said it "might" cover another county that "wasn't a million miles from Lancashire, Cheshire or the Wirral."

At the same time, Sir Norman announced that the TMB's official historian Dr Derek Ripley had been commissioned to write a history of the Tripe Marketing Board, provisionally entitled A History of the Tripe Marketing Board.  "We'll take advice on that, though," Sir Norman said. "Someone has suggested a more racy title - The Complete and Utter Truth About Tripe," he said.
