The Dunfermline Lib Dem team at the street stall

 

Last Saturday, May 12th, the Dunfermline Liberal Democrats held a street stall on Dunfermline’s High Street near the entrance to Kingsgate. Cllr James Calder and other members of the local party were there gathering signatures for our petition against the permanent closure of the out of hours GP service at Queen Margaret Hospital. Sign the petition

This issue greatly effects the people of Dunfermline and West Fife where there is a growing population and yet the health services in the area are consistently being run down. We had great support from the public and gained hundreds of signatures on just the first day of the petition. You can read more about this issue and Cllr Calder’s response to it here.

Cllr Calder was also able to meet with some of his constituents and discuss local issues such as the parking charges put in at the Park and Ride, introduced by the SNP/Labour Administration, as well as the state of the roads in some residential areas.

Throughout the day there was continued interest and appreciation that we are addressing the concerns of the local community.
