IT’S nearly time for the next National Roadshow with the first event of 2020 being set for the east end of Glasgow a week tomorrow, Thursday, January 16.

The Roadshow has been touring Scotland not just to promote The National but more importantly, to hear from our readers whose feedback we always appreciate – even when we are being criticised.

The latest National Roadshow is set for Calton Parkhead Parish Church at 142 Helenvale Street, Glasgow, from 7pm.

It is being hosted by Shettleston SNP who have made this appeal via the Yes DIY page: “Come to a panel organised by Scotland’s only independence supporting paper to hear from guests about what independence means to them.

“The event will be chaired by Newsquest newspaper editor of the year 2014 and founder of the National Richard Walker.

“Guests will include Paul Kavanagh (or as he is sometimes known, the Wee Ginger Dug) a columnist for The National and long-time writer on the topic of independence.

“Also there will be Anne McLaughlin MP a long-time activist who was returned to Westminster during the recent General Election.

“There will be an opportunity to ask questions and find out a little more about what drives our movement. We hope to see you there.”

It is very much a home gig for east end lad Paul Kavanagh who will no doubt bring a lot of local knowledge to bear on issues.

It’s free but please do register on Eventbrite.
