Over 200 people attended St Andrew’s Church on Friday to hear the Deputy First Minister of Scotland, Nicola Sturgeon MSP.
She was visiting as part of the Yes Scotland campaign, ahead of the Scottish Independence Referendum next September.
The evening had been organised by the Arbroath branch of the Scottish National Party with many of the invited guests undecided voters as well as those who will be voting ‘yes’ next year.
Branch member Carole Downie, who organised the event, said: “I am absolutely delighted so many people from all sections of the community and political leanings came tonight to hear the positive case for Scottish Independence.
“The evening gave the audience an opportunity to raise questions directly to Nicola on a number of issues including defence, pensions and the economy.
“I would like to thank Nicola for coming to Arbroath and listening to the public and I would particularly like to thank everyone for coming along on what was an excellent and well attended evening.”
