A meeting of Angus and Mearns Lib Dem members recently heard that there had been a significant increase in membership.

Membership secretary Sanjay Samani said: “We have had a massive 40 per cent increase in the membership of our local Lib Dems since the general election from across Angus and we are planning more evenings on various key policy themes in the coming months.

“The first of these will be on the key issue in Montrose of legal highs, and we are delighted that Alison McInnes, Scottish Lib Dem MSP, will be a key speaker.”

Chair of the group, Clive Sneddon added: “Across Angus and the Mearns we are delighted to see this increase in support from people of all ages, and this reflects not only the Lib Dem fight back but also that Liberal Values such as tolerance and fairness are important to people in our area.
