Edinburgh & South East LTA’s new and exclusive networking club – 1880, named after the year the SLTA was founded – held its second quarterly lunch in the capital this month with members travelling from as far north as Wick.
The brainchild of Graham Blaikie, chairman of Edinburgh & South East LTA and Marshall Bain, former president of the SLTA, the club creates new opportunities for people to meet up in relaxed surroundings and network on a local level.
Benefits for members include:
- Quarterly invites to lunch (costing just £30 per person, wines included)
- The chance to socialise and network at an Edinburgh & South East LTA member’s premises afterwards
- The opportunity to build new friendships and learn more about wine
- Regular updates and offers via a newsletter
SLTA members automatically qualify for membership of 1880 at no additional costs – for non-SLTA members, there is a one-off joining fee of £50.
Graham Blaikie, Chairman of the Edinburgh & South East LTA, welcomed guests to the event held at Twenty Princes Street.
“While it’s likely that most members will be involved in the licensed trade, it’s not a necessity,” he said.
“You can be in any part of Scotland – you don’t need to be in this area although my hope is that other LTA areas see what we’re doing here and decide to create their own 1880 Club in their area.” To find out more, contact firstname.lastname@example.org and view photographs from the event here
