Please receive the February edition of the Fireaway Club Newsletter.
The first social of the year takes place this Thursday, 27th February, 2020 at 7:30pm in The Booking Office pub, I7 Waverley Bridge, Edinburgh. Socials are very relaxed, informal and held in the open bar area of the pub.
Should be a really good turnout as it's the first meeting since October plus a number of new members have joined in the last few months, so 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.
The Walking Section is being revamped for 2020. Details to follow shortly.
CONDOLENCES & THANKYOU MESSAGE:
Following the funeral of retired colleague Ian Young on Tuesday, 11th February, Heather Young kindly forwarded the following 'thankyou message' and asked for it to be posted on the Fireaway website & Facebook page:
"Thank you to everyone who came along to Ian's funeral in such terrible weather. I'm sorry I didn't get to speak to anyone at the crematorium and I realised that some of you headed back to Edinburgh rather than go on to Hawick due to the terrible conditions.
Thank you for all the flowers, cards and messages. There was a fabulous turn out.
Heather and Isla Young"
