Over the past few years I have campaigned in Paisley and Renfrew, Leith, and Banff and Buchan for Holyrood and Westminster elections. Local SNP campaigners in those constituencies have been universally friendly, helpful, and appreciative of the support from London Branch SNP members.
Having the opportunity to learn from seasoned campaigners has been really helpful in developing my own campaigning skills. I’ve also made new friends and had some great experiences in lovely parts of Scotland. I would encourage anyone who is thinking of taking the plunge and getting more involved in campaigning to do so.
