Just some wee bits and pieces from the branch, constituency and events.
Steven Paterson’s Campaign Crowdfunding
Crowdfunding for Steven Paterson’s election campaign continues with only 17 days to do and we are 7% of our way to the target of £3000. We know a lot of members have expressed a wish to donate to the campaign so don’t leave it too late!
Alex Salmond Book Event
You may be aware that former leader of the SNP, Alex Salmond, currently campaigning for the Westminster constituency of Gordon, is also on tour with his new book on the last 100 days of the Scottish Referendum Campaign, The Dream Shall Never Die, and will be coming to the Albert Halls on 31st of March at 18:30 to talk about the book and sign copies. Tickets are £15 with a book and £5 without. You can now get tickets on line following this link.
Any members wishing to attend this years Spring Conference would need to contact the convener ASAP ( see contacts page for email) and will need to pay for their own ticket as the branch funded allocation is already used.
Alternatively you can go straight to my SNP and purchase tickets for each day there.

A few weeks back we posted a wee story on the odds beong quoted by bookmakers on how many seats might be won by the SNP in the forthcoming General Election.
This was todays quote on the Spreadbetting site IG, and basically says they predict SNP landing 42 seats. If we refer back to their previous quote on they were stating a haul of 36 seats up 6 from before. So if you took the bet then at £10 you will be sitting on a gain so far of 4 points allowing for the spread, or (£40)!
However with less than 50 days to go to the General Election we must not get complacent, it’s important we work twice as hard and secure Stirling from the Red Tories.
