Vote like wir future depends on it Debra Nicolson

Debra Nicolson, the Shetland local Green list Candidate urges Shetlanders to vote like wir future depends on it. Also, pictured are some Shetland Green activists taking a break from leafleting.

Shetland Greens are targeting two areas in Shetland, Lerwick South and Shetland West where we hope to have candidates standing for next year's council elections. The campaign is going very well and we have attracted four new members over the last couple of months who have been busy helping out. We are hoping to improve on our votes from last year to elect, not only Ariane Burgess, lead candidate, but also Anne Thomas who is our second lead candidate, so much more work needed to be done. And thanks to our wonderful team of volunteers we are confident we will achieve that.

Pedal Power in Shetland

Tue 7 Sep, 2021

Shetland Green members were amongst the 500 plus people at the council’s Pedal Lerwick event on Sunday.

There were all different shapes and sizes of bikes, with unicycles, tandems, cargo bikes, folding bikes, e-bikes, tricycles and recumbent bicycles being ridden by people of all abilities.

The event came the day after Scottish Green Party members voted overwhelmingly to approve a deal with the Scottish Government which included an almost tripling of the active travel budget, with £320 million allocated for walking, wheeling and cycling in Scotland by 2025.
