Edinburgh and Lothians Meetup

11 October 2023 @ 6:00 pm - 8:00 pm BST

Greetings, Please join us for our next local meetup on Wednesday, 11th October 2023, from 6-8 pm.

Together Edinburgh and Lothians is a group that meets monthly to respond to issues that affect us locally and that align with the national Together Campaigns. For example, this July, over 200 people attended our Public Forum Event around ‘Who Benefits’ from traffic restrictions on our freedom of movement. We organised it as a local group and were supported by the larger Together organisation. The feedback has been very positive from the attendees. If you would like to see a review of the event on Freedinburgh.online, please click here.

Genuine levels of concern were expressed by participants about the plans our Councils are implementing with no democratic mandate from us as citizens. We wish to play our part in debating these plans and explore how best to take local action to challenge what is happening across the Lothian Region. We aim to be a hub that brings together local people who are already taking action or would like to join in for the first time.

If you want to join us, please email Ann Roberts at anntogether@proton.me.

Augustine United Church,

The venue is walkable from Waverley Station and the Bus Station— and there are plenty of Lothian Buses too. (23, 27, 41 and 42). If you are coming by car, the Church does not have parking, but there is off-street parking all around it. You may need to search a bit, though.

We request a donation of £5 towards the room hire and our tea/coffee/biscuits. Please note we do not ask for a contribution from people coming along for the first time as we wish people to be able to check out whether our meetup is right for them first.
