Fire alarm testing:
In addition to the weekly fire alarm test at Scottish Gas Murrayfield Stadium at 9.30am on a Friday morning, our fire alarm engineers are engaged in quarterly maintenance this week and there is a possibility the sounders may be activated as part of that work. Maintenance is scheduled from 8am-5pm from today until Friday (29 September) and the engineers are being requested to minimise any activation of the sounders during this work.

Scotland Women international match:

Rugby World Cup match ball delivery:
Former Scotland rugby players Stuart Hogg, Hugo Southwell and Kenny Logan and former Scotland footballer Ally McCoist will be among 20 cyclists/walkers departing Scottish Gas Murrayfield Stadium this Sunday morning (1 October) to take the match-ball to Paris for the Scotland v Ireland Rugby World Cup match next Saturday (7 October). The journey is raising funds for the My Name’5 Doddie Foundation, which is pledged to devote all its energies to find a cure for Motor Neurone Disease. The cyclists/walkers will be assembling at the East Stand, (the one closest to Roseburn Street) from approximately 7am with a 7.30am departure. Given the early hour, we have stressed to organisers to keep noise to a minimum to respect local residents.
