What’s Going on in the Local Edinburgh Fairer Votes Campaign?

Here are some details of Edinburgh Events that are planned for the near future.

Planning Meetings

The Edinburgh group has a planning meeting every two weeks on a Thursday night.

We meet in the very friendly Argyle Bar,  15-17 Argyle Place, Marchmont, EH9 1JJ.

Meetings start at 7.30pm, in the cellar bar. They run until about 9.00pm and we usually stop for a pint and chat afterwards.

Our next meeting is Thursday, 17th February. You can sign up here.

Phone Banking

Phone Banking

Phone Banking is running in Edinburgh in our new office.  Monday to
Thursday 5-9pm and at other times by appointment.

Please call  Gregor Scotland, our phone banking manager, on 07557

Our target for phone banking is to make 1,000 contacts a week. It’s a
challenging target and we need your help to achieve it.
