Time is fast approaching for the February meeting where we will be pleased to welcome Alex Stobart to talk about the work of the Open Rights Group in Edinburgh. The only problem is that we might not have a venue for the meeting. Our normal haunt, The Southsider on West Richmond Street, was closed on 6th January to undergo some major building works and refurbishment. We were originally told that the pub would be opened again on the 24th January, but it seems that the builder thinks they will need at least another week to finish the work. The result is that it's a very close call as to whether the bar will be open in time for our meeting so cue frantic running around looking for an alternative venue to use in the event that it isn't.
