EARLIER this year, The National exclusively revealed the formation of a new organisation combining the various Yes groups in the ancient Kingdom of Fife and environs.

Fife Plus for Independence is a collaborative gathering of Yes groups across Fife, from Tayport to Kincardine, and also north to Kinross and west to Clackmannanshire.

The group formed in spring with the intention of meeting to learn from each other and share best practice, for example in Yes Hubs, running campaigns and keeping activists engaged.

They meet every month or two and are a voting organisation in the Scottish Independence Convention.

Now, Fife Plus for Independence is being even more innovative by holding an event which will focus on ‘Effective Campaigning to achieve independence’.

Fife Plus for Independence told us: “We are holding a learning event on Saturday September 21, from 9.30am to 4:30pm at Dunfermline High School in Jennie Rennie’s Road.

"The event Effective Campaigning ... to achieve independence is being organised to empower participants to drive Yes and to have better conversations that move people from No to Yes.

“We want people to be inspired, motivated and energised by the event."

There are offering an "exciting and varied programme" throughout the day, complete with speakers and activities.
