Fireaway Club - November Newsletter
Please receive the November edition of the Fireaway Club Newsletter.
The last meeting of the year takes place this Thursday, 30th November, 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 November social is an ideal opportunity to drop by for a pint and catch up.

Very sad news with the announcement of the sudden death of serving colleague George Brown aged 34. George joined Lothian & Borders Fire Brigade in 2003 as a supplies assistant and more recently was one of the Procurement Officers based at SFRS Headquarters in Cambuslang.
The funeral service was held on 17th October at West Lothian Crematorium.
With one new member having joined in the past few weeks it brings the current membership to 209. See the Latest News page on the website for the names of recently joined members.
