SCOTTISH BORDERS GREENS NEWS

It was great to have Scottish Green Party co-leader Lorna Slater in the Borders on Thursday 30th January, delivering an excellent and thought-provoking talk on Antarctica and climate change at Stow Primary School, itself an inspiring centre for environmental education and activism.

We had a bumper audience (60) of local folk and no shortage of questions and debate – many thanks to Lorna, to Green Stow and of course Stow Primary School for hosting, and to everyone who came out on a cold windy January night!
