Rutherglen Reformer - - News -

Ruther­glen MSP James Kelly re­cently ad­dressed the Ruther­glen Se­niors Fo­rum.

There, the Labour rep­re­sen­ta­tive dis­cussed his work and cam­paigns in the con­stituency and touched on his work in the Scot­tish Par­lia­ment.

Ruther­glen Se­niors Fo­rum pro­motes the rights and wel­fare of lo­cal se­niors, and works to raise aware­ness of is­sues af­fect­ing older peo­ple.

James said: “I was de­lighted to speak at the Ruther­glen Se­nior Fo­rum, and would like to thank Tom Arm­strong and the group for tak­ing the time to have a chat with me.

“It is al­ways a plea­sure to get out and about around lo­cal com­mu­nity groups to dis­cuss the work I’m do­ing to stand up for the peo­ple of Ruther­glen and Cam­bus­lang.

“The fo­rum plays an im­por­tant role in our area and is a great way for el­derly res­i­dents to re­main ac­tive and en­sure their voice is heard at both a lo­cal and na­tional level.”

Tom Arm­strong said: “We would like to thank James for com­ing along and speak­ing with our mem­bers. James is a good friend of the Ruther­glen Se­niors Fo­rum and we thank him for his sup­port.”
