2014 has been a phenomenal year for the Scottish Socialist Party. Thousands of new people have applied to join, and dozens of new branches have sprung up across the length and breadth of Scotland. Many of them, have done so in Edinburgh and the Lothians. Since the end of the referendum much work has been done on helping to form the necessary branch structures across Scotland for all members to be fully able to have the opportunities and the space to contribute, develop and have their voices heard.
By the end of 2014 therefore, SSP branch covering Edinburgh, Midlothian and East Lothian had grown far too large to effectively function as a single branch, into two new branches. The historic decision was therefore taken in December 2014 to divide the ever-expanding old branch, into two new ones:
- Edinburgh South and Midlothian,
- Edinburgh North and East Lothian,
Over the next few days and weeks, this site will be updated to cover the new Edinburgh South and Midlothian branch. Facebook and twitter accounts are also on the way for the new branch!
The new Edinburgh South and Midlothian branch will be holding its first meeting on Thursday the 15th of January, at 7pm in the Nelson hall. By the 15th a new e-mail address will be established for the branch, but until then, any queries may be addressed to, interim branch secretary, Calum Martin at: email@example.com
