IMPORTANT MESSAGE

The following documents are considered by the Branch Trustees as to be very important to Members and the Branch itself.  We as Trustees wish to ensure that you our members are as fully informed and able to make comments.  To this end; please see the ‘ONE CHARITY’ paper and our ‘BRANCH RESPONSE’.

  •  If you wish to make comment; please contact the Branch Chairman on chairman@edinburghrafa.org.uk or bertram.bob@gmail.com
  • The Branch Trustees are considering a ‘Special Meeting’ to discuss the implications of the subject merger of all branches, but the rules require at least 10% of our membership (53) to request such a meeting in writing.  If you would like to support this special meeting – please contact the Chairman as above.  Current responses are less than the 10% required for a ‘Special Meeting’; but the Branch Trustees have agreed that an ‘Important Meeting’ should still take place.   A calling notice for this meeting will be advertised by post, on our facebook page and on this website.
