Midlothian Green Party is part of the Scottish Green Party.
The Scottish Green Party has members in all corners of Midlothian. We meet monthly for a largely social gathering but an opportunity for non-members to chat with us. These are held in a pub or by Zoom (in times of epidemics or adverse weather). There is also a monthly ‘business’ meeting where the local committee can plan its activities, but these are also open to other members (and non-members except on rare occasions).
There is a monthly newsletter emailed to all members.
People ask us why we don’t stand candidates in all wards in Midlothian. It’s because it involves a lot of work. Leafletting, canvassing and even being a candidate demand a lot of effort and money. We also need people with specific skills. And it’s not just about knocking on doors or delivering newsletters; many people who agree with what we stand for have knowledge which can help us – e.g. planning, local green initiatives or awareness about cycling issues.
If you think like us, if you want to see more Greens making decisions which affect you, why not join us? A single Green councillor in Midlothian has made a difference. Imagine what we could do if we had more!
