MSP for the Highlands and Islands Emma Roddick recently enjoyed her visit to Islay for the annual Islay, Jura and Colonsay Agricultural show. The show, which held its very first meet in 1838, returned for the first time in three years last week.
Alongside many other groups and organisations, the local Islay, Jura and Colonsay Yes group as well as SNP politicians and councillors from the region were in attendance.
Commenting on the day, Roddick said:
“It was fantastic to be able to get over to Islay for the show this year. The weather was glorious, and it was brilliant to see so many enjoying the day. I thoroughly enjoyed chatting with various organisations from across the area, including South Islay Development and Islay Link Club, as well as many proud farmers who introduced me to their prize-winning animals.
“I also enjoyed joining the SNP and Yes group, getting out chatting to residents and visitors and raising some all-important funds to kick start our independence campaign.”
