Greens chat about their next manifesto
The South Lanarkshire branch of the Scottish Green Party were out in Rutherglen Main Street over the weekend.
Members spent Saturday afternoon chatting with residents about what they would like to see in their manifesto for next year’s local elections.
The Greens are planning to run candidates in all South Lanarkshire wards, including the four wards in Rutherglen and Cambuslang.
After the stall, the party’s national coconvener, Patrick Harvie, paid a visit to chat about the issues that had been raised.
A collection was also held for the Rutherglen and Cambuslang Foodbank.
Among those taking part was former secretary of the Rutherglen SSP, David McClemont, who has now joined the party.
Kirstin Robb, who was the Scottish Green Party’s top candidate for Central Scotland at the recent Holyrood election, said: “We really enjoyed being out on Rutherglen Main Street last Saturday.
“We spent the afternoon talking to local people about their lives and changes they would like to see in the future so that our council candidates at next year’s local elections are well informed about local peoples’ priorities.
“The stall was topped off by a bumper collection for Rutherglen and Cambuslang Foodbank and coffee with regional Green MSP Patrick Harvie in the Rutherglen Town Hall.
“Thank you to all who came for helping, chatting and donating.”
