SNP CANDIDATE MEETS ABERDEEN & NORTHERN MARTS GENERAL MANAGER

Tuesday, 26 January 2010

WHITEFORD VISITS THAINSTONE

Thainstone is the 'beating heart of the North-east farming industry'. That was the view of SNP Westminster candidate for Banff & Buchan Eilidh Whiteford after touring the Thainstone Centre, home of Aberdeen & Northern Marts on Friday with General Manager John Gregor who briefed her on current livestock issues.

During her visit, the SNP candidate also met with local farmers, Thainstone Centre retailers and financial services staff. Commenting after her visit, Eilidh Whiteford said:

"I'm very grateful to General manager John Gregor for taking time out on a busy Friday to give me a tour of the facility and update me on current issues.

"The Thainstone Centre is celebrating its 20th anniversary at the moment and it is a truly magnificent facility which serves the industry well – it truly is the beating heart of the North-east farming industry.

"It was good to visit on such a busy day and see at first hand the sort of prices which the store cattle and sheep were making.

"But as John told me, Thainstone serves as so much more than just a mart and has interests far beyond farming. With the Exchange building hosting events such as Taste of Grampian, conferences and other events, Thainstone really does have a lot to offer and not only underpins the agriculture industry but is a valuable resource for the entire community."
