SCOTTISH BORDERS GREENS NEWS
Our branch is today (Monday 22nd February) launching a crowdfunder appeal to support Barbra Harvie’s and Dominic Ashmole’s constituency campaigns.
Our branch secretary Tim Clancy will be undertaking a three day 100 kilometre walk from the Scotland/England border at Coldstream to the Scottish Parliament in Edinburgh (or walking 100km in his home area if the current lockdown restrictions are still in place in a month’s time) to help raise funds for the constituency campaigns. You can access the crowdfunder appeal at Go Fund Me
Any help you can offer the upcoming campaigns will be most welcome, whether it is a donation to the crowdfunder or joining one of our teams who hope to be distributing election campaign leaflets in the coming weeks if lockdown restrictions are lifted.
Thank you in advance for any help you can offer – just get in touch if you think you can!
Scottish Borders Greens continue to be active during the Covid-19 pandemic, mainly through our Facebook page, where we have been keeping you up to date with some of the work of our wonderful Scottish Greens MSPs.
As you would expect there is no major programme of local events.

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!
Scottish Borders Greens took part in the national re-launch of the Green YES campaign in St Boswells on Saturday 1st February.
