Cam­paign­ers clock up 500 miles

Rutherglen Reformer - - You Decide -

With the Ref­er­en­dum campaign en­ter­ing the fi­nal weeks Yes Ruther­glen sup­port­ers reckon that they have, as in the words of the Pro­claimer’s song, ‘walked 500 miles ’over the course of the campaign.

Yes Ruther­glen Co­or­di­na­tor Mar­garet Fer­rier said: “One of our mem­bers pointed out to me that they cal­cu­lated they walked five miles dur­ing a nights can­vass­ing or leafleting around the doors.

“As we have had over a 100 work days this year alone it’s easy to see how the mileage clocks up.

“But it will all be worth it to win a YES vote and we will be safe in the knowl­edge that with a win for YES all our foot blis­ters will be treated free of charge by a fully funded pub­licly owned Scot­tish Health Ser­vice.”
