OUR Yes DIY hub has always said co-operation between the various pro-independence groups would help spread the Yes movement’s influence and on Saturday we saw a prime example of that collaborative process.

Yes Arbroath and Yes Angus joined forces to distribute a leaflet in Arbroath, delivering it to about 4000 houses in all.

It was a terrific effort by all concerned and an indication in what might lie ahead for Arbroath which, of course, will host the 700th anniversary of the eponymous Declaration of Independence next year.

Meanwhile, can we draw your attention to an event being held tonight in Knightswood in Glasgow where Greg McCarra of the Scottish Independence Foundation (SIF) will be the main speaker at Yes Glasgow North West’s latest meeting.

It takes place in room number six of the Knightswood Community Centre at 201 Alderman Road.

McCarra is a former SNP councillor in West Lothian, a lecturer at Edinburgh Napier University, and trade unionist – “and currently ragtime guitarist,” as he says on Facebook.

He will be talking about the SIF, the progress it has made and the role it can play in the preparations for indyref2.

On Saturday coming, we will carry a preview of the Forward as One march and rally in Dunfermline scheduled that day. If you don’t already know about this event please check out the information on social media, particularly www.facebook.com/ForwardAsOneScot
