Launch of Living Rent Lochend, Saturday 20th 12-3pm, The Ripple Project (The Hub)
Living Rent Lochend is launching as a new branch of Scotland's Tenants' and Community Union. Over the last months, members have been knocking doors, holding meetings, and learning how to take on the council: now we are ready to become Living Rent's newest branch.
In this short time we have already won block repairs and millions of pounds from the council into council homes in Lochend - we are only getting started! Alone we can do little, together we have power. Your community is getting organised to fight to have the voices of ordinary residents finally heard.
We are inviting residents from Lochend /Craigenntiny/ Restalrig to speak about issues affecting us: empty homes, shoddy repairs, council neglect and cleansing, and park lights to choose our focus for the year. Invite people along!
