There was a great turnout at Kirkintilloch’s Park Centre recently for the pro-independence Yes Day event.

It was officially opened by Blair Jenkins, Chief Executive of Yes Scotland, and attended by Fiona McLeod MSP as well as local councillors.

Mr Jenkins used his opening remarks to highlight the differences between the pro-independence Yes campaign and the No campaign.

He contrasted the positive vision the Yes campaign was putting forward for Scotlands’ future with what he claimede was the negativity of their opponents.

Mr Jenkins called the Yes campaign was a true grass-roots organisation with local Yes groups the length and breadth of Scotland.

Also at the event were representatives of the many groups supporting a Yes vote, including Business for Scotland, Generation Yes, Women for Independence, and Trade Unionists for Yes. They spent the day chatting with local people about their reasons for supporting for independence.

Yes Kirkintilloch, Lenzie and the Villages will be organising further events across the summer where they will put forward the case for independence.

All will be welcome, whether they have decided how to vote or are still undecided and need more information before the referendum in September.
