Banffshire and Buchan Coast SNP MSP Stewart Stevenson has announced details of his forthcoming surgery tour of local communities which commences on Monday, June 16.

This year will be the 14th such tour that Mr Stevenson has undertaken, covering 37 communities from Rothiemay in the far west to Boddam at the south-eastern end of the constituency and inland to Aberchirder, New Byth and Memsie.

Commenting, 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, which is important. It also gets me into some of our smaller communities which I may otherwise not have reason to visit during the course of a year.”

Surgeries this year for Mr Stevenson include:

June 16: Portsoy - 1:50pm - 2:15pm at Church Street. June 20: Aberchirder 11:05am - 11:30am at The Square. June 23: Rosehearty - 10:45am - 11:10am at The Square.
