An information event was held at North East Scotland College in Fraserburgh recently about the upcoming referendum on Scottish Independence.

Students at the Fraserburgh campus of North East Scotland College had the chance to find out more about the referendum on Scottish independence at a recent event.

Representatives from both the Yes Scotland and Better Together camps pitched up stands at the Atrium of the college in Fraserburgh recently.

The information event allowed college students to ask questions about the key issues in the independence debate and pick up leaflets, badges and stickers along the way.

The pro-union Better Together stall was represented by campaign organiser Sophie Macdonald, while the pro-independence Yes Scotland stand was represented by Banff and Buchan MP Dr Eilidh Whiteford, Peterhead North and Rattray councillor Fiona McRae and Fraserburgh councillor Charles Buchan.

Commenting, Dr Eilidh Whiteford MP said: “It’s been a very busy morning with a lot of undecided voters taking away information.

“I would like to congratulate the Students’ Association for organising this event and giving the students the opportunity to inform themselves of the key issues as they make up their minds in Scotland’s historic referendum.”

Councillor Charles Buchan added: “It’s great to see the Yes supporters out in numbers and it’s very good to see both the Yes and the No campaigns together in Fraserburgh so voters can get both sides of the debate.”

Local Campaign Organiser for Better Together Sophie Macdonald commented: “We’ve only just got here but it’s been busy the last wee while.

“The students think it’s great to have both stalls here and they’re being able to ask any questions they have because it’s a really important decision that’s going to affect their lives.”
