Highlands and Islands Labour MSPs, Rhoda Grant and David Stewart, have called on the good folks of the Western Isles to get behind their community radio station, Isles FM.
The community radio station, which is 100% run by volunteers, needs to raise £6,000 before Friday for a licence to stay on air.
Highlands & Islands MSP Rhoda Grant backs Scottish SPCA warning that pets should not be seen as cute gifts to give just at Christmas, but they are for all year round and for the life of the pet.
Rhoda Grant said,
“ As a pet owner myself, I plead with people to think through the decision of taking on a pet or giving a pet as a Christmas gift, as such a decision can have a big impact on families and individuals.
“Be sure the person who is being given the gift is ready, prepared and understands all the implications of looking after such a pet before you take or make any decision”.
I very much welcome this debate in the year of food and drink 2015.
I hope that the year will highlight what is best about Scottish products.
We have a lot to be proud of, as we have heard pretty much all afternoon.
We have high-quality produce that is recognised world wide, and we have producers that aspire to excellence as well as to building on our traditional fare—and what is there not to like about whisky?
