Banff & Buchan MP Eilidh Whiteford will undertake her annual surgery tour on September 22 and 28.

The tour is an opportunity to visit Banff & Buchan’s smaller settlements, and to meet with constituents in rural areas who may find it difficult attending surgeries in the constituency’s towns.

Dr Whiteford said: “Banff and Buchan is a very big constituency, so it’s good to get out and about into the many different and diverse communities.

“I strive to be accessible as possible to constituents who need help, and with a full-time local constituency office, website with a contact webform, e-mail and telephone, it’s very easy for constituents to get in touch. However, there is still very much a place for traditional surgeries and meeting people face-to-face.

“My surgery tour is an opportunity to do just that and anyone wishing to see me should call my office on 01779 822022 where my staff will be pleased to arrange an appointment time.”

The schedule is as follows:

September 22: Longside; Mintlaw; Fetterangus; Maud; Cuminestown; Fyvie; Rothienorman; Forglen; Aberchirder; Cornhill; Fordyce; Portsoy; Whitehills; Macduff; Gardenstown; New Pitsligo.

September 28: Boddam; Cruden Bay; Hatton; Stuartfield; Auchnagatt; Methlick; New Deer; Strichen; Rosehearty; Sandhaven; Inverallochy; St Combs; Crimond; St Fergus.
