MSP unveils local mobile surgery dates
Banffshire & Buchan Coast SNP MSP Stewart Stevenson has announced details of his forthcoming surgery tour of local communities which commences on Tuesday, July 2.
This year will be the nineteenth such tour that Mr Stevenson has undertaken, covering a total of 36 communities.
Mr Stevenson said: "The annual surgery tour with my mobile office is always extremely enjoyable and I think also that people appreciate having their MSP come to their own community rather than having to go to one of my 'static' surgeries in a nearby town or village.
"Even in this age of electronic communications, people still value being able to have face-to-face contact with their elected representatives.Surgeries are a very important part of the job of being a parliamentarian and the tour also gets me into some of our smaller communities which I may otherwise not have reason to visit during the course of a year."
Surgery dates are: Tuesday, July 2 – 2.35pm-2.55pm Cullen, The Square; 3pm-3.15pm – Portknockie, Hill Street; 3.20pm-3.35pm – Findochty, Seaview Road near chemist; 3.45pm-4pm – Rathven, Main Road near Kirk. Thursday, July 4 – 2.55pm-3.10pm – Burnside; 3.20pm-3.35pm Deskford, community centre car park.
No appointment is necessary, although constituents with ongoing cases should advise their attendance on: 01779 470444.
