Your local Greens
We are members, supporters, and allies of the Edinburgh and West Lothian Branch of the Scottish Green Party. We welcome new people to join us and help make Craigentinny/Duddingston a greener place to live.
The Craigentinny/Duddingston team meets on the first Tuesday of each month to receive updates from our local representative, discuss campaign activities in the ward, and socialise with our fellow Greens. These meetings are currently taking place online due to distancing restrictions.
