Sat 14 Aug 2021 - Photo Walk - Edinburgh Fringe - CANCELLED

9:00am

As many of us who showed an interest can't make it this Saturday we feel it necessary to leave this until another day when it is  convenient to more members.
(Following a discussion Wednesday evening(05/08), due to a bad weather forecast we  have postponed until the 14th.
Details yet to be sorted (train, bus, or car), it very much depends on who's wishing to go. Please advise on the programme link if you wish to go and we'll get details finalised).

Hope we can try again soon
