We will be holding our postponed AGM via Zoom at 2.30pm. An email will be sent to members before the AGM allowing them to sign in. There’s a link to the AGM papers in the FRA Documents area.
We held a virtual “drop-in” Coffee Morning on July 17th in the South Garth. The weather was just right – sunny but not too hot. Over 50 people attended and were able to chat to other Friends they hadn’t seen during the lockdown months.
We hope to repeat in August – Weather and Coronavirus permitting.

As you will see from our Events Calendar, the 2020 Dinner has been booked for October 6th at The White Horse.
Dick and the Committee have now arranged the progamme of Events for 2020. Click the link below to download the document. It’s best to print it two-sided, then fold it in the centre. So put the dates in your diary and decide what to book!
Regrettably we had to postpone the dinner as the White Horse went out of business and was closed just before the dinner was due to be held. Most disappointing. We will try to decide what steps to take to reacitivate the dinner when the Committee meets in mid November.
