    Edinburgh

    We are a group of Friends from across Edinburgh. We aim to meet monthly for a social gathering, and in the past have been for a walk up Arthur's seat, played games, shared soup and attended the Central Edinburgh Quakers' winter Ceilidh together. We have an email list and Facebook page, but most of the organising gets done on our Whatsapp group. Members of the group regularly go to central Edinburgh Quaker Meeting and South Edinburgh Quaker Meeting for Sunday Meeting for Worship.
