“I’d like to extend a very warm welcome to you as an SNP member of the West Fife and Coastal Villages Branch.  You are fortunate to have elected representatives at all levels of government in your local area as well as an enthusiastic and hardworking grassroots team – all are working hard towards a fairer, more equal and prosperous Scotland.  As an SNP member, there are many opportunities to be part of our exciting movement and I hope you are able to take part in some local campaigning or attend a branch fundraiser or meeting soon.  Your support is much appreciated.”
Nicola Sturgeon, SNP Party Leader and First Minister of Scotland.

Douglas Chapman“I have been your member for Westminster since my election in 2015.  In that campaign, I built a strong affinity with the West Fife and Coastal Villages SNP Branch which helped me so much.  They are strong, vibrant and active campaigners and they also know how to enjoy themselves through a range of well run social events.  You are welcome as a member of a team who will involve you in helping to make West Fife an even better place to live.”

Candidate“Since being elected to the Scottish Parliament in May 2016 I have worked closely with the West Fife and Coastal Villages branch.  I have tackled many issues across the branch area from the campaign to reinstate the West Fife Rail link, to bus service changes which affect many of the small communities from Limekilns through to High Valleyfield and onto Culross, Kincardine and further afield.  It has always been a pleasure to engage with the branch members on these topics and I look forward to meeting you in the near future.”

The EU Referendum took place on 23 June when England and Wales voted to leave and Scotland voted a resounding Remain.  Nicola Sturgeon announced two things:  a) that the Scottish Government will commence negotiations with the EU with the objective of Scotland remaining in the EU and b) that this is such a substantive change that it may lead to a second Scottish Independence Referendum dependant upon whether Westminster recognise and support the requirements of Scotland in the Brexit negotiations.

Our two MEP’s, Alyn Smith and Ian scotland in europe bannerHudghton, have put an information document together about why it is good to remain in the EU.  Click on the banner to access their website.  Alyn is a member of the council of experts set up by our FM to advise on the Scottish Government’s talks with the EU.   Alyn publishes regular updates on all things Brexit and EU.  You can access these on this website here.
