An MSP and two Johnstone councillors have held a street surgery in Corseford area of Johnstone.
SNP politician Tom Arthur, MSP for Renfrewshire South held the session with his Johnstone South & Elderslie colleagues, Councillor Jacqueline Cameron and Councillor Andy Steel.
With several more visits across the area planned over the coming months, letters will be sent out giving notice of street surgeries in each area as they are scheduled, giving constituents the opportunity to contact Tom ahead of time and make arrangements for a personal visit.
Previous matters raised include benefits, health service enquiries, housing and consumer issues.
Tom Arthur told Renfrewshire News: “I have always strived to be as accessible as possible for my constituents, with a high street constituency office and regular advice surgeries, these street surgeries are yet another opportunity for local people to air their views and get assistance from my office.
“I have also arranged several meetings with individual constituents and local groups who were not available on the day of the street surgery.
“I really enjoy getting out and hearing about the issues that matter to people across Renfrewshire South. If you have an issue that you require assistance with, please contact my office to arrange a chat on 01505 331 990 or by email at email@example.com”
