SNP candidate for Aberdeenshire East, Gillian Martin, has praised the organisers of this year’s Strichen Mini-Gala for their efforts.
Gillian attended the event at the weekend and got involved in the judging of the children’s pet parade and fancy dress contests.
Gillian said: “I had a tremendous time at Strichen and really must congratulate the organisers of the Mini-Gala on their efforts.
“It was good to see the community getting behind the event and I hope it goes from strength to strength.”
Central Buchan SNP councillor Lenny Pirie added: “Strichen Gala was a mainstay of the village for many years and helped fund the building of the Ritchie Hall.
“It’s great to see the Mini-Gala being so successful and particularly the number of young people involved in the organising of it and they deserve to be commended for organising a successful event.
“I’m grateful also to Gillian Martin for coming along and supporting the Mini-Gala and for getting involved on the day.”
