For APRS Members

APRS Members’ Day & Council
Please book now for our annual Members’ Day which will take place on Saturday 21 September at Dirleton in East Lothian. The theme this year is pressures on rural villages with Dirleton as an example. The Dirleton Village Association (DVA) has kindly agreed to host the event at the Dirleton Kirk Hall (10.30am start with coffee served from 10am onwards). There will be a presentation in the morning from two members of DVA which will examine the pressures and opportunities facing rural village life in the 21st century. This will be followed by lunch and a guided tour of the village, including current development sites, in the afternoon. The day is expected to finish at 4pm. There will be a charge of £10 towards a sandwich lunch. All APRS members, family and friends are warmly invited to attend. Please contact Nina at or 0131 225 7012 to register their interest in attending.
