Forthcoming events:

We have been looking out for Welsh-themed items in the Fringe, but with no hits so far. If you spot any items likely to be of interest, I’d like to hear and pass on to our members – gro.yteicoshslewhgrubnidenull@yraterces.

Our opening social will be held at Mortonhall Golf Club, at 231 Braid Rd, Edinburgh, EH10 6PB. There will be a tasty supper and entertainments. A good chance to meet and catch up with all our news. My next EWSNEWS will have all the details.
