Welcome to the Edinburgh Group!
As a long-standing local support group of Coeliac UK since 1973, the Edinburgh Group are on hand to support members in the City of Edinburgh, together with members in the wider area outside the City which includes part of Fife, West Lothian and Midlothian.
As a member of Coeliac UK, you are automatically a member of your local group – in this case the Edinburgh Group of Coeliac UK.
Until further notice, the Edinburgh Group also covers the Borders area until such time as a new Borders Group may be formed so all members in the Borders area are cordially invited to join the Edinburgh Group Mailing List.
So that members are able to receive our group’s three annual Newsletters, which give regular information about our meetings and events, members are invited to join our Edinburgh Group Mailing List together with joining our group’s Facebook Groups.
If you would like to join our mailing list, please e-mail me: Wilma Fraser at email@example.com with this request and I will get back in touch to arrange this. You will know that you are not already on our mailing list if you have not been receiving our newsletters.
In any one year, we hold various meetings and events in Edinburgh, ranging from cookery demonstrations and New Members get-togethers to presentations from medical professional in relation to coeliac disease.
Other events are an annual summer gluten free lunch, an annual Christmas gluten free dinner and not to forget the younger coeliac members in our group, each year we hold a coeliac children’s party for the 0 – 10 year olds.
If you are newly diagnosed, you will find a Committee Member at the Welcome area at our meetings, who will happily have a chat with you to dispel any worries you may have about getting adjusted to being on a gluten-free diet. At all of our meetings there will be teas, coffees and gluten-free baking so join us, get to know the Committee and make new friends.
I look forward to hearing from you and drop me an e-mail anytime!
