Ken Douglas, Socialist Party national treasurer

We are very pleased to announce that the Socialist Party has found new premises! After renting our old premises for nearly 20 years we have bought our new building which will be a big asset for our party.

All our members and supporters who have made big sacrifices to donate to our Building Fund can feel very proud that they have enabled us to secure our national centre for the foreseeable future. We will also be able to bring the printshop over as well; so for the first time since the 1990s having all our operations in one building.

In addition to the purchase price of the building and all the costs associated with that, there are also the costs associated with moving and fitting out the building. For instance installing all the cabling and power points will cost over 10,000; moving the press will cost around 4,000.

There are still over 25,000 in outstanding pledges to the Building Fund waiting to be paid and we would ask that these are redeemed as soon as possible. We would also appeal to all our members to make a further donation if they can to help with all these costs. Do you want to buy a brick in the new centre for 20, or several, or a small wall?


The Socialist's publication schedule

The Socialist newspaper is now moving from its standard weekly schedule to its fortnightly summer schedule. This is to accommodate the office move, related technical changes, and other summer events.

This issue of the Socialist, 1049, will run from Thursday 4 July until Wednesday 17 July.

During the following transition, there may be temporary interruptions to our communication and production. We thank all readers and sellers of the Socialist in advance for your patience and assistance.

We will return to our regular weekly schedule soon.
