A large part of what we are doing in our branch at the moment is about making the branch accessible, open and above all interesting and relevant to members.  We are in the process of expanding our branch activities as well as increasing action as part of the union.  If you have ideas you want to share, or things you’d like to see us doing please get in touch or come along to a meeting, we want to hear from you.

We aim to get interesting speakers to attend each branch meeting.  If you know someone you think would be a good speaker, or if you would like to share your knowledge on a specific topic, please contact Fiona, Lizzie, James or Paul. 

If you are an Equity member or student member based in the area you are able to join the branch (no charge) so please get in touch with the Branch Secretary. If you are a member or student member visiting the area you are very welcome to drop into the next branch meeting and get to know some of your fellow members.
