Wendy Chamberlain Candidate for the Stirling Constituency

Wendy Chamberlain grew up in the Liberal tradition in the west of Scotland. After graduation she joined the Police service in Edinburgh. She then worked as a communications lecturer at Fife College, and then for the MOD in Rosyth, supporting service personnel leaving the forces into employment. She now works for a large UK manufacturer in learning and development. Wendy said, "I am passionate about fostering skills and ambition. I will work to provide the vital local opportunities that people need to reach their potential."

At this election, the Scottish Liberal Democrats are offering positive changes, particularly in the areas of mental health, education, and supporting public services. They are the only party representing what the Scottish people voted for in the recent referendums: Yes to remaining in the UK, and Yes to remaining in the European Union.

Scottish Liberal Democrats believe that we need to focus on building a better Britain and not playing regional politics.

The Scottish Liberal Democrats will stand up to Theresa May's destructive hard Brexit, a deal that will cost jobs put up prices, and destroy future opportunities for our young people. The impact of Brexit will last for decades. Already we have seen rises in fuel prices following the slump in the value of sterling since the EU referendum.

Unlike the Scottish Independence referendum, the Brexit vote offered no destination. Theresa May has set us on the most damaging course whilst Ruth Davidson and the Scottish Conservatives do nothing to represent Scotland's interests. Meanwhile the SNP use Brexit as an excuse for a second Independence referendum. Only the Scottish Liberal Democrats will give you the final say on Brexit - with the option to stay in if you don't like the deal on offer.

A vote for the Scottish Liberal Democrats will mean a vote for investments in public services, in particular education and mental health to support Scotland's future.

Stirling Marathon Benefits to the area

This will be a festival of running for everyone, from a family run on Saturday round the University to a 5k and a full Marathon on Sunday. The route has been chosen to showcase Stirling constituency from Doune through Dunblane and Bridge of Allan to Stirling itself. The event will broaden the appeal of sport to all in the area, particularly with the inclusion of legendary distance runners Liz McColgan and Zola Budd.

The sponsorship of runners will raise funds for thousands of charities across the country. There are many affiliated charity partners supporting research into cancers and strokes, supporting people through diagnosis and treatment to our local Citizens Advice Bureau and Strathcarron Hospice.

This will be a great day out for everyone. So whatever the weather come along and cheer the runners on.
