Edinburgh Branch events

Welcome to the events section of the Edinburgh Branch.

Our meetings are usually held at Edinburgh Napier University.
Address: Siegfried Room, Rivers Suite, Edinburgh Napier University, 219 Colinton Road, Craiglockhart Campus, Edinburgh, EH14 1DJ

Regular branch meetings are held on the second Thursday of the month from 14.00 with tea/coffee served at 15.30. This year we have introduced a few evening meetings into the programme. Evening meetings start at 18.00 with a buffet beforehand.

Roger Midson Challenge Trophy
Roger Midson was a past chairman of our branch who died in 1992. In order to keep alive his memory and the work he carried out for the branch, a competition is organised to be played among members annually.

The winner of the competition has their name engraved on the silver rose bowl, which is retained for one year, and in turn, chooses and organises the competition for the next year.

Over the years the competition has included golf, karting, ten pin bowling, archery and indoor bowls. The competition is open to all Edinburgh Branch members and their immediate family.
