On Saturday night, CF Central Scotland hosted a dinner in The Bentley Hotel, Motherwell. The dinner was a great success, and has helped to raise funds for the new branch. Members came from across all over the west coast to attend and show their support.
Margaret Mitchell MSP (Central Scotland), also attended and showed her support for the new branch, she also gave a speech on the topic of the era of SNP majority government. Margaret also gave a special vote of thanks to the event organiser, branch chair Ashley Baird, highlighting what an achievement it was to have drawn as many people to what was sure to be the first of many CF Central Scotland dinners.
Reflecting on the success of the evening, Ashley said: "I am absolutely thrilled with the turnout and the kind words from local members and association chairmen."
She continued: "I am pleased to say that following the success of this event plans for our future events are now well under way. I would like to thank all the members who attended the dinner and for their generous donations to our new branch."
