Applications are now open for you to register your business for the UK Government’s new ‘Eat Out to Help Out’ scheme.

The scheme will offer diners a 50% discount every Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday from 3 to 31 August 2020, and you can claim the money back from the government.

Lack of Support for Youth Organisations

I am incredibly disappointed with the SNP’s response to my call for third sector funding for youth organisations, which have not been eligible for grants that have been offered to other charities.

Applications for Business Support Grants Closing Soon!

The deadline for business support grant applications is Friday, 10th July. 

Applications will be closing next week for the following support grants, so please remember to submit your applications via Aberdeenshire Council as soon as possible:

Support Local Businesses

Local businesses:

At this trying time, it is important to support local businesses if you are in a position to do so. Many lovely small businesses around Aberdeenshire are still open and are doing their best to support local communities and help those in need. 

RBS MoneySense Education Programme

The Royal Bank of Scotland have created an online hub of useful resources for students of all ages to help them save money and develop good money habits.

North-East Now Hub to Support Local Business

It is important that during this difficult time we #SupportLocal. 

North East Now have created an online hub to highlight all of the local businesses that are currently open in the North East.

Rise in Crime

Unfortunately, there has been a worrying increase in crime across Aberdeenshire this past month.

With communities suffering from the effects of the Covid-19 pandemic, the SNP Government need to ensure that communities feel safe as we ease out of lockdown.

Support Teachers' Jobs!

Despite an educational crisis, newly qualified teachers across Scotland are currently facing unemployment as councils struggle with a lack of support and funding from the Scottish Government.

Open Our Schools Campaign

Scottish Conservatives have launched our new Open Our Schools campaign!

Current plans for children to only have up to 2 days of classroom teaching is simply unacceptable.

Energy Policy Consultation!

My Energy Policy Consultation will shape the Scottish Conservatives Energy Policy for 2021.

I would be grateful if you would be able to fill out the survey, and would encourage you to share with other stakeholders and individuals who would have an interest.
