Banffshire & Buchan Coast MSP Stewart Stevenson was busy last week getting out and about in some of the constituency’s smaller communities holding mobile surgeries locally.

The SNP MSP visited 37 towns, villages and rural communities in his annual ‘mobile surgery tour’ which is an established fixture, now in its 13th year.

Commenting afterwards, Mr Stevenson said: “The surgery tour is an opportunity for these communities to engage with their Parliamentarian and for their Parliamentarian to do likewise. It is real grassroots Parliamentary work.

“In an age of electronic communications, there is still no substitute for getting out and about and seeing things at first hand and meeting with people face-to-face.

“I try to be as accessible as possible all year round and during the course of last week the total number of surgeries I have held since being elected in 2001 reached 850.

“I’ll be holding my more conventional ‘static’ surgeries in the main towns over the coming weeks and months and these will be advertised in the local press and in public libraries as usual.”
