In amongst the fun, fizz and burgers, if you’re going to the Mayfield Gala, you might want to spare a thought for some of the most vulnerable people in our communities. We’re going to be at Mayfield Gala Day on Saturday 6 June 2015 to accept food donations for the Midlothian Food Bank.
You’ll find us inside the pavilion at the park. We’ll be grateful for all donations but if you can, please give us the kind of foods that won’t go out of date or end up having to be thrown out. Fruit juice cartons, rice, pasta, or tinned goods will be absolutely perfect, and thank you in advance for your help in supporting our local community.
Dave Prentis, Unison’s general secretary, has urged us all to vote for public services on May 7, the UK General Election.
We’re now at the end of a very long general election campaign. You’ve heard what the politicians have to say and now it’s your turn.
UNISON members have told me again and again that the things they’re most worried about are the rising costs of living, job security and the future of the NHS. With the election so close your vote will have a direct bearing on all of these important issues.
So please make sure you vote – and vote for the future of our public services.
With very best wishes
UNISON general secretary
