Bulletin schedule update

Please note that there will be a small adjustment to the bulletin schedule over July.

The next issue will be published in three week’s time rather than two. This means the next publication date will be Tuesday 13 July.

The next issue will then be a fortnight later on Tuesday 27 July.

As always please do send any thoughts, or stories, to the bulletin team as we love to hear from you. You can reach us at bulletin@ed.ac.uk.

Don’t forget to register to vote!

With elections for the Scottish Parliament on Thursday 6 May just a few weeks away, it is worth making sure you are registered to vote and have a postal vote if you want one.

Registration is open to all foreign nationals with leave to remain. This is a recent change, so you may have the right to vote for the first time this year.

The deadline to register to vote is Monday 19 April but it only takes five minutes online, so why not do it now?

Register to vote now

Postal voting

In addition, you might want to consider how you will be voting. Given the need to continue to be vigilant around social distancing due to Covid-19, many people are opting to vote by post.

You can apply for a postal vote just because you want to, you don’t need to give a reason.

Registering to vote by post is straightforward, but the deadline is Tuesday 6 April, so if you are interested it is worth thinking about now.

Hello to all our colleagues and welcome to the first digital issue of bulletin magazine. Although the current situation means we won’t be printing any paper versions of bulletin in the near future, we feel more than ever that a staff magazine has a role to play in keeping us connected with each other, sharing stories and maintaining our sense of community.

How can you capture the upheaval and uncertainty happening across the globe in a few sentences? We’re not going to try. Everyone has faced their own difficult challenges over the past few weeks, but we at bulletin are keen to showcase the good that has happened too. People are coming together in new and inspiring ways to support and help both their local communities and their work ones. In these strange and unsettling times, it’s easy to feel isolated, especially those who have had a tricky transition to home working, or have had to stop working altogether. With our more frequent weekly issues of bulletin we want to provide a space for our community to interact and support each other.

We want to use this piece of the web to share uplifting stories, interesting features and community tales from anyone who wants to share them with us. So please, send us your pet pictures, send us your daily wins to keep you motivated with work, send us your wackiest lunch concoctions, send us your home workout tips, send us your book recommendations, whatever you like. Let’s keep talking to each other and making sure we’re all ok.

We look forward to hearing from you.

The bulletin team
