Fireaway Club - May Newsletter

Please receive the May edition of the Fireaway Club Newsletter.

Members Survey:
All members should have received an email with a link to the survey on Monday, 15th May.
If you've not already done so please take the time to complete the survey, it's a short, quick (10 question) survey, all responses are anonymous and it will literally only take two minutes to complete.

The survey is designed to allow members an opportunity to provide feedback and suggestions on all aspects of the club including; social meetings venue, events/trips and the Fireaway website. The intention is to update and improve the club which now has over 200 members.

We'll circulate the overall results and conclusions once all the responses are received.

Social Meetings:
The next meeting takes place this Thursday, 25th May, at the Guildford Arms bar, West Register Street (from 7:30pm). Socials are very relaxed, informal and held in the open bar area of the pub.

If you've not been before, or missed the last few meetings, the May social is an ideal opportunity to drop by for a pint and catch up.
(Please note: Once the Members survey responses are analysed during June there may be some changes made to the format of social meetings starting with the scheduled July meeting. We'll circulate any changes once they're confirmed)

Events Update:

We're looking to review and re-invigorate the hillwalking, golf and travel/visits sections We'll base the review on the responses and comments received from the Members Survey currently being undertaken. We'll circulate an update on any changes once the survey and it's conclusions are complete.
