Dornoch Street Stall

Dornoch Street Stall

We were very pleasantly surprised by the reception we received today in Dornoch, and going on the same weekend as the Agricultural Show proved to be a great move.  

We were lucky with the weather, folk are much happier to stop for a blether it seems when the sun is shining, we had lots of interest and engagement from locals and tourists alike and can count today as a great success.

Dornoch we will be back, Thank You.

 

 

A Quick Look Back

A Quick Look Back

The original Yessers : Brenda Steele, Angus Walker, Tom Whyte and the late and much missed Rod MacKenzie

This popped up on my timeline today, apparently it was taken 4 years ago, can’t be that long surely! 

And still we campaign, we’ll be at Dornoch with a Street Stall next Saturday and have already started discussing canvassing areas. Our message is strong as Westminster hobbles along rudderless and people on the streets are not happy. It’s clear to us, only a second Independence referendum with a solid yes result can lead us back to a state of stability and prosperity.

YFIS,

Ian

 

 

YR&S Summer of Independence

YR&S Summer of Independence

As a group we are very pro-active and are continually moving ideas forward. So, as such and in this spirit we have taken up the challenge offered by Nicola to help move the case for Independence on and grow the wider pro-Indy movement by seriously upping the ante in our  engagement with people.
We have therefore laid plans to set a series of events underway over the summer, starting with a street stall in Alness this Saturday 8/7/17.
This will kick off events every fortnight across the entire Ross & Sutherland area as we will literally be taking to the road, hitting a number of targeted stop off towns & villages on the NC500 route where we will conduct canvassing / street stalls and other activities, still being planned.
To maximise our presence, we will use a newly converted trailer which we plan on turning into our “Indy Mobile” by covering it in our Yes Ross & Sutherland logo | Yes everything | Flags so we make a huge splash out on the road and at each stop off.
For canvassing, we now have our own NEW tool in the shape of the CANVASS APP that Ian Vallely has created & developed, which is really big news for us as it gives us great capability. The app will be published on this site very soon.
So all in all we have the ideas, we have the enthusiasm, we have the activist Yessers what we don’t have at this stage is the full funding we would need to carry out all we would like to do.
For the trailer alone we have costed adhesive banners which at their cheapest will cost £70 each – 2 Required
We also need other equipment and printing done so we effectively need to raise £200 very quickly indeed.
We will hold other fundraisers, however, to raise the funds we need to get started, quickly, we are appealing to your generosity and ask you to consider making an urgent donation of £5 or more (or whatever you feel you would like to contribute)
This can be done via the following methods:
 
 
 
• Electronic Transfer to our Bank*
• Cheque*
 
 
*please contact us for details.
 
Your help with this project is very much appreciated, Thank You.
