THE SNP are planning monthly days of action to boost party support, beginning in June.

The party have asked local branches to start a national campaign to help “hard-working activists” share the SNP’s “positive vision for Scotland”.

The days will focus on party political messaging – not solely independence, as some members believed at first.

The first National Campaign Day is to be held on Saturday, June 3, which is just three weeks before the party’s independence convention.

It is understood after June 3, the campaign days will take place on the first Saturday of the month.

This coincides with the umbrella organisation of grassroots independence activists, Believe in Scotland, announcing Saturday summer campaign days on July 1 and August 12.

Jen Layden, the SNP's organisation convener, said: "As the largest party in Scotland by far, the SNP has many hard-working activists out delivering our positive vision for Scotland's future on a regular basis.

"To support their efforts, we recently agreed that the first Saturday of each month will be a National Day of Action. This will support members and activists to continue taking the SNP's positive and ambitious vision for the future to doorsteps across the country.

"With people across Scotland being failed by the broken Westminster system and two pro-Brexit parties fighting for the keys to 10 Downing Street, the SNP are the only party offering real change with independence so we can get rid of Tory governments for good.”

It is unclear whether this is the announcement the First Minister pledged to make on "a summer of independence campaign”.

Humza Yousaf previously wrote exclusively in the Sunday National: “During the SNP leadership campaign, I vowed to set up regional assemblies across Scotland to bring together and harness the energy of our members to discuss how we cross the line and win independence.

“The SNP team are working hard to organise and schedule our regional assemblies, and I will make an announcement shortly on a summer of independence campaign activity, so we take our positive message to every corner of the country.”
