Trail Tales || Posters at Midnight


This week marked a key milestone. On Wednesday night at midnight, we entered the Short Period of the election. That means there are six weeks until E-day.

And at one minute past midnight, campaigners across the constituency hoisted their ladders and adorned our lampposts with yellow SNP posters.

Most of the constituency has now been postered and the last few towns and villages will be completed over the coming days.

If you see an SNP campaigner putting up posters, give them a wave! They look like this:

But our midnight wanderings haven’t stopped us getting out on the doorsteps by day. This week, we went to Dalwhinnie, Laggan and Fort Augustus.

After stopping off for a bite to eat at Laggan Stores, we made our way to Strathmashie where we handed over our very first field poster in Badenoch!

I love travelling across the constituency and seeing the way our natural resources are used in a whole host of different ways.

For example, at Laggan Wolftrax, the Forestry Commission has built over 20 miles of purpose-built trails running through Laggan Forest. There is also a great wee café to refuel after flying down one of the trails.

Now, that we’re into the Short Period there are some key deadlines which are fast-approaching.

The first is the deadline to register to vote. If you’ve not registered to vote, or know somebody who hasn’t registered yet, please remember to register before 18 April. It is easy peasy to do – just click here.

The second is that your chance to win an iPad runs out this week. On Thursday, 31 March the competition closes – but you can still enter today! Just click here and fill in four quick questions.
