Our next event on our air fence fundraising schedule is seven weeks away but already it seems to have caught the attention of supporters throughout Central Scotland.

A Brief History of Speedway Racing in Edinburgh will be presented at the Boroughmuir Rugby Clubhouse at Meggetland in Edinburgh on Friday 14th March and already, within a week of announcing the event, more than half of the tickets have already been sold. Admission by donation of £10 buys you a ticket for the event at the very comfortable Boroughmuir Club and you also get a buffet served during the interval.

The Club is currently putting together a list of personalities who will offer their insight into the sports history in East Central Scotland and there are some hidden gems to be revealed. However, the Club is particularly interested in speaking to anyone who either was involved in the organisation of racing at Marine Gardens or who may simply have been a spectator at the meetings. Please email or telephone the Club if you can help.

The Air Fence Fund continues to march towards the target of £20,000 and this week it has advanced to £13277.90. Thanks to everyone who has donated to the Fund.
