LBFRS formally ends when the new Scottish Fire Service officially comes into existence on the 1st April 2013.
To mark the occasion a farewell celebration/function has been organised, by LBFRS, on the 28th March 2013. They are particularly keen to extend an invitation to all retired personnel and have specifically asked that details of the event be posted on the Fireaway Club website.
•Event: Farewell to LBFRS
•Date: 28th March
•Venue: Cargo, Fountainbridge, Edinburgh (upstairs hall - 300 capacity)
•Cost: £6 per ticket
A copy of the advertising poster for the event is available to view via the Latest News page on the Fireaway Club website.
The date coincides with the next Fireaway Club social meeting scheduled for 28th March. However, at the social held last Thursday (Jan 31st) everyone indicated they were was keen to attend the function and agreed to cancel the March meeting and make the 'Farewell to LBFRS' function a Fireaway event.
If you're interested in a ticket please email firstname.lastname@example.org by midnight, Wednesday, 6th February. We'll contact LBFRS on the 7th with the total number of tickets requested.
The plan would be for retired members to meet in Cloisters pub, 26 Brougham Place, Edinburgh at 7pm on the 28th March. Tickets would be distributed there before going on to the function.
There's also a thread on the messageboard with more information and a running total of the number of retired members indicating they will attend the event.
