Two Fraserburgh and District councillors have drafted a letter to Young’s Seafood Limited asking them to keep their Broch factory open.

Councillors Brian Topping and Charles Buchan have produced the letter which members of the public can sign in the hopes of persuading the fish company to stay.

The letter states: “We, the undersigned, urge you to stay in Fraserburgh.

“Remember the long relationship you have had with the community, the skills of your committed, loyal, hardworking workers, and the huge importance you have to our economy.”

The two councillors launched the letter on Tuesday 4 and will be asking the local community to sign up and ask Young’s to stay.

The letter will be placed in local businesses around the area and the councillors will also be asking people to join them at 10.30 on Super Saturday to try and get as many people to sign the document as possible.

Councillor Topping said: “We hope that it will stay open and that this letter will give members of the community a chance to have their say.”

Councillor Buchan said: “Brian and I thought that we would try and give the community a chance to show their feelings about the situation at Young’s in Fraserburgh.”

He added: “We hope that the factory will stay open because if it closes it will be the biggest blow to Fraserburgh since the CPT closed.”
