IT may be one of the smallest groups in the Yes movement in terms of numbers, but Yes Linton is big with its ambitions to address the many matters facing Scotland.

Based in West Linton in the Scottish Borders, Yes Linton has managed to attract one of Scotland’s top experts on refugees and the issues facing them for a Zoom event tomorrow night at 7.15pm Martha Harding of the Scottish Refugee Council will speak about the work of the Council.

Her topics will include "What are the Afghan schemes?" and a general view of asylum in Scotland - remember that immigration is a reserved power for the Westminster Government.

She will suggest what communities can do, and will answer questions which can be put through the Zoom app chat box.

Yes Linton stated: “This event is not in any way party political and is an opportunity to hear about an important area of public policy. All are welcome to attend.”

The Zoom link below will be active from 7.15pm and the event will end around 9pm. Meeting ID: 880 1910 2645, Passcode: 988971

Next Wednesday, October 13 at 7pm, Dr Tim Rideout, convener of the Scottish Currency Group, will give an online talk about the plans to set up a currency for Scotland after we regain our independence. Hosted by Yes Southside, you can register at Eventbrite.
