If enough members wish to go to Glasgow, the branch will run a bus to the event. We are asking anyone wishing to travel to this vitally important CO26 event, to let the Grampian Resource Centre know by Monday 25th October, by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org
The bus will leave from Inverurie market place 7am and Albyn Place Aberdeen 7.30am on Saturday 6th November to take part in the march and rally in Glasgow from 11am to 4.30 pm. We hope to arrive back for 9pm.
