Apologies for the slight delay in posting results, we had a couple of glitches to sort out which we feel we have resolved.

Do contact us if you have any issues with results. Huge thanks to all our volunteers and special thanks to Mark Rappaport of the Silverknowes Tea rooms for letting us use his great space. It must be one of the best views in Edinburgh to sit and enjoy a coffee or ice cream so please do visit him again.
