MERRY XMAS EVERYONE & BEST WISHES FOR 2020
FIREAWAY CLUB - DECEMBER NEWSLETTER
Please receive the December edition of the Fireaway Club Newsletter.
There will be no December social as there was a Xmas lunch organised earlier in the month. Therefore the next social will be Thursday, 27th February, 2020 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. If you've not been before, or missed the last few meetings, the February social is an ideal opportunity to drop by for a pint and catch up. All welcome
Following the the last walk of 2019, at Penicuik Estate in December, it was agreed to revamp the walking section with a view to setting out a year long program of walks. Details to follow shortly.
