SI Edinburgh Meeting Programme 2022

Usually our meeting is at the Edinburgh Central Youth Hostel at the corner of Annandale Rd and Leith Walk, opposite Elm Row.  There are some continuing rules to follow – wearing of face masks, social distancing and frequent hand washing –  just to keep us all safe.  We are also continuing with Zoom as well for those who are not yet able to join us at ECYH.

Normally SI Edinburgh  meets on the 2nd and 4th Wednesdays of each month at 7.30.   Several members meet informally beforehand to share friendship and eat a meal or drink a cup of coffee.  You can be sure of a warm welcome if you come along.

Let us know if you would like to join our meetings.

Our programme of club meetings alternates work and activities related to Programme Action (the projects and our service to our community) with speakers on related topics.

You can also check out our newsletter SIEnna for information about the club’s activities.


Programme 2022 (updated)

We are back at Edinburgh Central Youth Hostel but still with some hybrid sessions. Our winter meetings are likely to be on Zoom so we avoid the worst weather!

Next meeting is 12 October 2022 to deal with some business items.  Do let us know if you would like to join us either in person or by Zoom.
