March Newsletter

Mar 25, 2013


Please receive the March edition of the Fireaway Club Newsletter.

Social Meeting:
The next meeting takes place next Thursday, 30th May, Guildford bar, West Register Street, at 7:30pm. Socials are very relaxed, informal and held in the open bar area of the pub. Please note: The social scheduled for 28th March has been cancelled due to the 'Farewell to LBFRS' function taking place on the same night.

Farewell to LBFRS - Thursday 28th March 2013:
For those attending the function a reminder that the plan is for retired personnel to meet-up prior to the event as follows:-

Cloisters pub,
26 Brougham Place, Edinburgh,

Tickets, for those who opted to collect on the night, will be handed out in the pub. For info, over 40 retired personnel bought tickets - including a lot of 'well kent faces'!.. Should be a good night.

Events Update:

1) Hillwalking:
The March walk has been cancelled due to the ongoing poor weather conditions. We'll now look to arrange a walk in April. A thread has been started on the messageboard for walk/date suggestions. Full details of the walk will be available via the Latest News page on the website once confirmed. Everyone welcome.

2) Football - English Premier League:
As there are only a few fixtures remaining of this campaign it will be next season (2013-14) before we arrange another trip.

3) Retirements:
Gordon Fisher would like to invite all colleagues past and present to join him for a farewell drink on Friday 12th April, 1930hrs at Forrester Rugby Club, South Gyle Access, Edinburgh EH12 9FR. Full details on the Latest News page.

Best wishes to Ali MacLeod who is recovering from a minor heart attack. He has undergone surgery to have a stent inserted and is apparently on the road to recovery.
