6 February 2019
Three very different events are running this weekend during the visit to South East Dorset of our Green Party MEP, Molly Scott Cato. Ask Molly a question online, join a debate at BU, or get active and join our local election campaign on the ground... or why not do all three?!
Friday (8th) 4.15pm-5.15pm (with questions accepted in advance)
Facebook Live "Ask Me Anything" with Green MEP Molly Scott Cato
Molly says: "You can ask me anything about the EU, Brexit, the Green Party or my work as an MEP. My speciality areas - thrilling as they are! - are tax, Latin America, sustainable finance, and also food and farming."
• Tune into the live broadcast on the Bournemouth Green Party Facebook page
• We encourage you to submit your advance question, by email to email@example.com - or you can interact live with Molly during the broadcast.
• The completed broadcast will also be uploaded later to South East Dorset Green Party's new YouTube channel.

Meet other friendly Greens, and find out what's going on in your community and about our election campaign.
Meeting initially at Conto Lounge (418 Wimborne Road, Winton, BH9 2HB) at 9.45am, we'll be going door-knocking and door-to-door leafleting in Winton East:
• If you've not door-knocked before but you're open to spreading the Green message to residents, we'll show you how to get started and pair you up with someone more experienced.
• It's also likely that we'll have our new ward newsletter (covering the oil rig) ready to deliver door-to-door. We expect to have leafleting rounds available, if you prefer not to canvass residents.
Running significantly late? If we've already left Conto Lounge when you arrive, call Simon on 07957 206806 to catch up with us.
