Dear President Liz, Brother and Sister Curlers, and Friends,
Thank you very much indeed for your lovely card of good wishes for Walter and me when he was in hospital. Walter is delighted to be home now and hopes to be more mobile soon.
We wish you all the best for “guid curling” when you are allowed to participate in these far from normal times.
With many thanks again,
Walter and Christine
In a joint statement by Curl Edinburgh and Murrayfield Curling Ltd issued on 1st November, it has been confirmed that all curling at Murrayfield rink has been suspended until the end of the year. A further statement on the feasibility of re-opening in January 2021 will be issued in due course.
It has come to our notice that our Honorary President Walter Brown has had a bad fall in which he sustained both a broken ankle and a head injury, resulting in a stay in hospital.
Walter is recovering and is receiving physiotherapy, in the hope that he can get home as soon as possible. Our best wishes go to Walter and also to Christine, his devoted wife, who sadly is unable to visit him at this time because of coronavirus restrictions.
Curl Edinburgh have confirmed that, following today’s Scottish Government announcements, Murrayfield Curling Rink will not reopen as planned on 26th October but will remain closed for at least another week until 2nd November.

As you know Ian McKay, one of our longest standing members, very sadly died earlier this month after a long illness and his funeral took place on Friday past. Our President, Liz, had sent flowers and a Sympathy Card to Linda on behalf of Club members and Linda has since responded with the message below.
All our thoughts and prayers are with Linda at this sad time.
