So, it's that time again when the agricultural shows come to South Lanarkshire, and there the Greens were, in between the livestock and tractors! The aim was threefold: to raise our profile among the farming community, to raise Janet Moxley's profile towards the council elections next May; and most importantly, to chat to local folk and ask them what mattered to them.
After Monday's vote at Westminster which committed the UK to renewing the Trident nuclear weapons system, the local branch of the Scottish Green Party are calling on all attending the recent demos in East Kilbride, Rutherglen, Hamilton and Biggar, to continue to work together to ensure nuclear weapons have no future in Scotland or across the world.
We are looking for volunteers to help with our stall at the Agricultural Shows which were very successful last year.
South Lanarkshire Greens are worried that cuts to frontline social services could leave vulnerable people at risk. From 20th June, Social Work reception teams will be pulled out of the South Vennel area office and relocated to a call centre in Hamilton. This means that people needing to contact social services for the first time will no longer be able to have face to face contact with the a social worker and social work staff will not longer be able to make home visits as part of the initial assessment process.
There will be a South Lanarkshire branch Clydesdale area meeting in the Wallace Tea Rooms on the 22nd June at 7:00 pm. All members welcome
Target to Win meeting followed by Media team meeting - fun, fun, fun!
