Cllr Cathy McEwan and Cllr Jim Paterson are to hold a surgery in the premises of local charity ‘Our Place Our Families’ on the 1st Fri of the month at 11:00am. The Councillor’s will be available to discuss local issues with residents and are hoping by adding a week day surgery to their schedules, be more accessible to those who cannot attend the existing surgeries they hold.


Cllr Paterson said:

“I am pleased to confirm that myself and Cllr McEwan will be offering a surgery from Our Place Our Families. I was keen when elected to make sure I was as accessible to residents as possible. When Cllr McEwan suggested we contact Diane Booth at Our Place Our Families about hosting a surgery it was exactly the type of venue I was looking for. Our Place Our Families provides a vital service in our community and by allowing us use of their premises will strengthen the link between constituents and their elected representatives.”

Cllr McEwan said:

” As well as other surgeries, that Councillor Jim Paterson and myself attend, I am more than happy that we are holding an extra surgery in Our Place Our Families.  This gives us a further opportunity, to attend, listen, signpost, and take forward any concerns of residents within our Communities.”
