Drinks Reception 4:00pm to 5:30pm on the veranda of the John Hope Gateway

There is never enough time at CPD events to catch up with colleagues and friends, which always seems like an opportunity missed.

Given that the Conference closes early, and in the hope and expectation that the sun will be shining, we thought a good way to end the day would be to have drinks and chat on the veranda overlooking the gardens.

Staff from the Botanics will pass amongst us with a range of refreshments. If it is one of those warm, balmy evenings we are so used to in Scotland, we could be blessed with a magical moment. (If, against the run of play, it is pouring with rain we do have a Plan B).

The Gardens close at 6:00pm and the Botanics have asked that we have started our homeward journeys by then. It would be good if we all started making tracks at 5:30pm so that the Botanics staff can tidy up before they close.

We hope that you are able to join us and that the sun is shining.


We are particularly pleased to be an approved supplier with the Law Society of Scotland
