The Better Together Angus campaign is officially launching next month in Arbroath in the lead up to next year’s independence referendum.

The group is campaigning to promote the idea that Scotland should remain as part of the UK and that there should be a no vote in next year’s poll.

The campaign will be launched on Monday, October 14, at 7.30 p.m., in the Old and Abbey Church hall in Arbroath.

Better Together Angus is co-chaired by Angus councillors Martyn Geddes, who represents Arbroath East and Lunan, David May of Montrose and Monifieth and Sidlaw councillor Margaret Thomson.

And a spokesman for the group said they are keen to get the Better Together message out.

He explained: “By staying part of the United Kingdom we believe that Scotland has the best of both worlds allowing it and its residents to reach further and do more than if it were to separate.”

The group say the launch will allow members of the public to hear about the local Better Together campaign and how they can take part.

There will also be a speaker discussing why they think Scotland would be better as part of the UK.

This will then be followed by a question and answer session which will allow the public to get answers from a panel about the referendum and what separation would mean for them, Angus and the rest of Scotland.
