In a recent edition of The Evening News, it was reported that a tenth birthday party was held to celebrate ten years of Valvona & Crolla having a restaurant within its premises at Elm Row. Philip Contini , the managing director, stood up and sang, unaccompanied, an Italian love song. It impressed the reporter so much that he thought Philip should have been a professional. Maybe at the next reunion Philip will give us a rendition. (as an amateur.)

In another edition of the Evening News, Tom Flaherty was the winner of the 2005/2006 Edinburgh & East of Scotland Alliance golf league for amateur golfers.

In Monday 17 April Scotsman, Sports Letters Page, was a letter from Ron Delnevo bemoaning the reporter who was saying that Hearts have slumped to mediocrity. It obviously got him worked up. We would have thought that Ron would be too busy to get involved in this correspondence.

Laurence Cecchini has suggested a rogue’s gallery on the web page of how we look now. Any offerings should be sent to Maurice Dougan


The next reunion has been booked for 17 November at The Corn Exchange, Chesser, Edinburgh . 7.30pm to 12.00pm

Buffet catering will be provided, and there will be a cash bar. Ample car parking will be available. The cost per person will be £ 10 , at the moment, but we are confident that sponsors will come forward. We have already had a verbal offer of help. The room is booked for between 50 & 120 people, so note it in your diaries, and let Maurice Dougan and Lindsay Wilson know by e-mail, of your intention to come. Lists of attendees will be sent out in early November. Spread the word and allow as many people as possible to know. Early warning should get many more to attend this year.


An article will be produced in the Scottish papers in the near future explaining how the 192 phone and search facility has helped trace FPs. This may obtain more contacts.

Stephen Krot spoke to the editor recently. He is alive and well, and recently engaged to be married. He stays in Penicuik. His face was vaguely familiar, but it is almost 40 years since we met. Lets hope others will try to make contact with the editor if they spot him.

Received a very nice letter from Dr. Eddie Stone , who has been a G.P. in Bury, Lancashire, for many years. Many older FPs will remember Eddie, and his ginger hair. Like many FPs of his era, he regularly played for Edinburgh Wanderers.
