Why “Aa the Claik”?
Well, it’s utilises the rich Scots/Doric languages but for those who feel they need an English translation: “Aa” is the local term for “All” and “Claik” has several meanings, depending on geographical area and on which dictionary is used, but we have taken it to mean “gossip” or, more formally, “news”. So “Aa the Claik” is the name we have chosen.
