SNP MSP Adam Ingram was on hand recently to present Ballantrae’s Andrew Muir with an iPad after he was one of ten lucky winners in a draw conducted by Yes Scotland.
And Mr Ingram took the opportunity to reflect on the influx of new members that have joined the SNP locally since the independence referendum last month.
He said: “I was very pleased to be able present Andrew with his iPad from the Yes campaign draw – and I’m hopeful that he will use his new iPad to join the growing ranks of new SNP members
“The Yes campaign locally spoke to and inspired so many people who had never been involved in politics before.
“And I’m absolutely delighted that this new spirit of democratic participation is carrying on, with hundreds of new people joining the SNP in Carrick, Cumnock & Doon Valley. Since the referendum, the SNP has enjoyed an extraordinary surge in membership making us the third largest party in the UK.”
