Spring Lunch

The Spring lunch which was held at St Columba’s was as usual very successful with an excellent turnout of members and friends.  Our President, Anne Robins gave a fascinating talk on family history showing that with dedicated research family histories can be discovered going back many hundreds of years.

Future Programme

Annual Lunch – Thursday 17th June – Caledonian Club – 12.30pm for 1pm

This year our annual lunch will take place at the Caledonian Club, 9 Halkin Sreet, London, SW1X 7DR (nearest tube – Hyde Park Corner) and we are honoured to have as our speaker the Principal of the University of Glasgow, Professor Anton Muscatelli.  The cost will be £40 per person to include a reception with wine and soft drinks beforehand and a two course meal with wine, coffee and tablet.  Guests will be very welcome at this event.

Please note that this event will be held in the Johnnie Walker room of the Club and the entrance is by no. 9A  which is next  door to the main entrance.

The Alumni Office at the University has requested that we try to include non-member London based alumni, to give them the opportunity to hear the new Principal and the office will issue an email to them shortly.  Our members and guests will have priority and we will handle University triggered requests carefully to ensure the event retains its “Club” atmosphere.  Any external alumni attending will be charged a higher price for the event.

If you intend coming to the lunch please complete the slip below and return it to me with your cheque by Saturday 31st May.  As the Caledonian Club require numbers fairly early there will be no refunds given after Saturday 12th June.
