Banff & Buchan SNP MP Eilidh Whiteford visited New Deer Show on Saturday where she held a surgery and met with the local NFU Scotland branch. The MP also toured the cattle and sheep lines before visiting the various stalls and exhibitions around the showground.
Commenting, Eilidh Whiteford said:
"There is a tremendous amount of work goes into planning a successful show like New Deer and the Show President, Secretary and Committee deserve our thanks for pulling together another excellent showcase for the best of Buchan and North-east livestock.
"The support given to the show by the Buchan community and the public at large is vitally important to ensuring that this 163 year-old tradition continues not only as part of Buchan's farming heritage but also as a vibrant contributor to the rural economy."
