A panel chaired by 17 year old Callum Timms was joined by Falkirk author, Alan Bissett, local MSP, Michael Matheson, Dr Kenny Deuchar, Young People’s Minister, Angela Constance MSP, Green Party member, Zara Kitson and Falkirk Council’s youngest Councillor, Colin Chalmers for a lively question and answer session.
At the end of the evening the independence camp had gained supporters and volunteers to assist in the campaign ahead.
Organiser, Cllr Johnny McNally said,
“ The event was a massive success and credit to the young people who participated. Particular credit for the manner in which young Calum Timms who was a superb chairperson on the night.
Our speakers were all inspiring as we set the vision for a fairer more equal Scotland compared to what we suffer at present from London. Everyone I know who is a member of the SNP joined to produce a fairer more equal society.
I believe that young people will share that vision with the YES campaign being the natural home for young voters.”
