The protest trip to the Scottish Parliament is being organised by campaign leader and main driving force, Jill Fotheringham. Although Jill feels that the current “Access to Laurencekirk” study is a positive step forward for the campaign, there’s no guarantee that it will be paid attention to on completion. With a letter to first Minister Alec Salmond being answered instead by a Transport Scotland representative, Jill and the group plan to make the politicians sit up and take notice.
The protest party will be heading to Edinburgh on 24th April, on a coach kindly donated by Laurencekirk company MW Nicoll. Protesters and supporters needed! So if you want to do your bit for the campaign and head off to Holyrood with a banner or placard, sign up! Tell Jill via the Facebook page here, or post a reply below and we’ll pass your name on. Names need to be in by next Wednesday, 16th, at the latest. Time of leaving and pick up points will be confirmed soon.
* Update: Pick up at Mearns Academy 7.45am and Northern Hotel Brechin, 8am. Arriving Edinburgh around 11am, leaving at 12.30pm, to be home for around 3pm.
