The next social of 2019 is scheduled for this coming Thursday, 27th June at 7:30pm in The Booking Office pub, I7 Waverley Bridge, Edinburgh. This is a Wetherspoon's pub ideally located at the entrance to Waverley station.
Socials are very relaxed, informal and held in the open bar area of the pub. So if you've missed the last few meetings or not been before the June social is ideal opportunity to drop by and catch up over a pint. All welcome.
