Local MSP Drops In On Mintlaw Under 5s Group

Mintlaw Under 5s will receive a £50 boost when local MSP Stewart Stevenson visits the group on Monday 8 March at 11.00am at their base at Mintlaw Academy community portacabins. The Banff & Buchan MSP took part in a recent research survey being conducted by a national company which offered a small sum of money to a local good cause for his time.

Mr Stevenson nominated the group to receive the funds after being asked to open their new play area last year. SNP Westminster candidate for Banff & Buchan Eilidh Whiteford will also accompany Mr Stevenson on Monday in what will be her second visit to the group.

Commenting, Stewart Stevenson said:

"I get approached to take part in several of these surveys each year and the organisers pay a small amount for taking part which I always donate to good causes in my constituency.

"I was very impressed with the sterling work Mintlaw Under 5s did in creating their play facility which they were kind enough to ask me to officially open last year so I'm glad to be able to make a small contribution to the group."

Eilidh Whiteford added:

"I visited the play area last year which the group had fundraised for and it is a fantastic facility. It's good to see such community spirit in evidence from such a committed and enthusiastic group."
