The case for Scottish independence will be made at a ‘Yes Day’ event in Kirkintilloch on Saturday (May 31).

It will bring togther some of the many organisations and individuals who support Scotland leaving the UK.

The Chief Executive of Yes Scotland, Blair Jenkins, will be in the Park Centre alongside Fiona McLeod MSP as well as local councillors John Jamieson, Gillian Renwick and David Ritchie.

Mr Jenkins said: “I’m delighted to be able to open the Yes Day event in Kirkintilloch. It promises to be a great day combining lots of fun activities with the serious business of talking about the tremendous possibilities offered by an independent Scotland.

“Events like this are about people coming together in their community and talking about the kind of society they want. Independence offers us the chance to create a fairer, better and more democratic society for our children and grandchildren.

“I encourage everyone to come along to Yes Day on May 31 and be a part of this great debate. We know that the more people hear arguments for independence, the more likely they are to vote Yes.”

Yes Day offers an opportunity to come along and chat with groups including Business for Scotland, Farming for Yes, Generation Yes, Labour for Independence, Radical Independence, Trade Unionists for Yes, Women for Independence and Yes LGBT.

They’ll be there to talk about why they are so positive about independence for Scotland. And to keep folk entertained there’s live music, face painting, refreshments and lots more exciting activities during the day.

The doors of the Park Centre will open from 11.45am and the event will be officially opened at midday by Mr Jenkins.

The event is free tand runs until 4pm.
