Hockey meet reception call

Have your say

City chiefs have been urged to hold an official reception for participants in the European Indoor Hockey Competition.

The international, to be held at the Inverleith Hockey Club from February 16-18, will feature clubs from Scotland, Denmark, France, Ukraine, Belgium and the Czech Republic.

Conservative councillor Gordon Buchan has lodged a motion for the next meeting of the full council calling for an “appropriate reception” to be held as the players arrive in the city, and asking either Lord Provost George Grubb or Deputy Lord Provost Rob Munn to attend the closing ceremony.
