SI Edinburgh Meeting Programme 2019 – 20

SI Edinburgh meets on the 2nd and 4th Wednesdays of each month at 7.30. Our meeting is at the Scottish Youth Hostel at the corner of Annandale Rd and Leith Walk, opposite Elm Row.  Several members meet informally before hand 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.

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.
