AGM and General Election 2017

The Annual General Meeting of the Midlothian Branch of the Scottish Green Party will be held on Tuesday 9th May 2017 from 7pm to 9pm at:

Ladywood Leisure Centre 14A Yarrow Court Penicuik EH26 8HD

Buses: 15/37/40/47 to bus stop outside Tesco’s.

This will be our first meeting after the Council Elections so please come along and help us to (hopefully!) celebrate.

It may not have escaped your notice but we are now heading for a snap General Election to be held on Thursday 8th June.

Because this election has been called with relatively short notice, our constitution allows us to organise our candidate selection process with less than the normal prescribed notification periods to the membership. However I am notifying you now that we expect that, if we decide to field a candidate for the Midlothian constituency in the 8th June election, our AGM on 9th May will also be the selection meeting for that candidate. It is being held at the Ladywood Leisure Centre, Penicuik, from 7pm.

We will keep you informed of the deadline for submitting nominations for candidates for the Westminster election.

In the meantime if you have any questions about what is involved in the nomination and selection process, please contact me.

We look forward to seeing you there.
