UPCOMING EVENTS

SATURDAY 18TH FEBRUARY 2017 – ACTION DAY!

Please join us for Leith & Forth Green team action day – we’ll be meeting up outside the Harbour Inn in Newhaven at 10am, distributing newsletters for a few hours, then meeting up for a drink afterwards. You’re welcome to join us around 1.30pm for a social gathering even if you can’t make the distribution run!

Newsletters, maps, information and guidance will be provided. If you’ve never done newsletter delivery before we can provide a ‘buddy’ to start you off.

Great fun, good exercise and you’ll be helping to get more Green councillors elected in 2017!
Any questions, phone or text Chas on 07905 147552 or Iain on 07595 265 440.

Our inspiring local Green MSP Andy Wightman will be joining us at the Starbank Inn from 1930.
