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.

Funding to Extend Deeside Railway

Congratulations to the Royal Deeside Railway Preservation Society for the success of their ‘Going West’ appeal to extend the steam railway line into Banchory 🚂.

It is always great to hear positive stories of people making a difference in our local communities.

Petition to Support The National Trust for Scotland

A petition has been created to help save job losses at The National Trust for Scotland.

I have heard from many of you who are concerned by the impact these job losses will have on the wonderful NTS sites across the constituency.

Covid-19 Support

Every week I am sending out updates on the support available for those who have been affected by Covid-19.

See below for this week’s key changes:

Lyme Disease

Government must commit to raising awareness of Lyme Disease

As a long-time campaigner for raising awareness of Lyme Disease, I am disappointed by the Scottish Government’s lack of support in fighting this disease.

Guidance for the Elderly

After hearing from many concerned elderly constituents who have been told to return to work, I questioned the Minister to seek further clarity on the advice for those aged over 70.

Childminder Services

New guidance has been made available for childminders to help them restart their childcare services.

From 3rd June, childminders can provide childcare whilst adhering to health and safety measures and limiting the number of households they care for to a maximum of 4.
