Welcome to the 2015 seaon.

This season we’ve changed the date of our regular monthly meeting between April and September/October back to the 4th Saturday of the month as normal in parallel with the farmers market at Linlithgow Cross, but instead we’ll be using the pavement area at the Vennel west of the Library, so we’ve plenty room for the cars.  We got going this season with our annual Christmas/New Year drink & chat in Platform 3….a rogues gallery as usual.
