From Jean of our Edinburgh and Lothian Group:
We were very happy to get back out on the streets in Edinburgh after so long away. We had a fine day near the farmer’s market beneath the Castle. With our banners and posters tied to the railings and staying socially distanced, showing our flag to many passers-by.
We had leaflets available but rather than approach people we kept the leaflets a transparent bag also hung on the railings.
I don’t think we got any converts, but I had three long very interesting conversations with supporters, including a couple of visitors from Worcester, England.
We also got our first Donations!
And from Mary of the Greater Glasgow Group:
I’m starting up our Thursday Argyle Street stall again on 24th June. If you are in the city, come and have a chat! Also our mini-stall (with the Grassroots Oban banners) will be out on Tuesdays beginning 22nd June.
We’re socially distanced and we’re back!!
The Glasgow Group stall had a few outings last summer but had to stop when Covid restrictions were re-introduced. Here is our mini-stall with our banners at Alexandra Park:
