Grassmarket Mission appoint a new trustee

The trustees are pleased to announce the recent appointment of Simon Bolam MBE as an additional trustee, and look forward to having him on the board, bringing to it his wealth of experience in finacial services.

Simon is the former owner of E.H. Ranson & Co., insurance brokers in Edinburgh and a Fellow of the Chartered Insurance Institute (FCII). He is a former President of the CII (1994-95) and former Chairman of the British Insurance Brokers Association (1998-2000).

Work starts on the roof

As we move into the sixth month of construction we have added more pictures of the progress on the Kirkhouse extension. As the build continues there may be less and less change to see from the outside but we hope to be able to bring you some pictures of the progress inside and the fit-out as it happens. In the meantime the pictures show the roof going on and the skylights for the main hall as well as work on the North wall and entrance.
