SNP CANDIDATE HAILS SUCCESS OF COLVILLE CLUB SHORTLISTED FOR TOP AWARD

15th November 2019

MARION FELLOWS PLEDGES TO CONTINUE FIGHT FOR SMALL BUSINESSES AND COMMUNITY GROUPS

Marion Fellows, the SNP candidate for Motherwell and Wishaw, visited the local Colville Park Golf and Country Club to congratulate them on reaching the finals of the Club Mirror Awards and has pledged to continue fighting on for small businesses if re-elected.

The Colville Club has been nominated for the Best Golf Club and Best Country Club within their category.

General Manager, Carol Cairns, and chef, Skye, will both be heading to Doncaster Racecourse on 28 November for the announcement.

Mrs Fellows met with kitchen staff, Club regulars and Golf Professional and Club Secretary, Sam Cairns, to hear about the Club’s sporting achievements and events in the months ahead.

Mrs Fellows is the SNP’s spokesperson on Small Business and has pledged to fight on for small businesses and community groups if re-elected on 12 December.

Commenting, Mrs Fellows said:

“It’s local, small businesses like the Colville Club which are the backbone of our economy and the lifeblood of our communities providing jobs and purpose to people. The Colville is a perfect example of what businesses and people in the Motherwell and Wishaw constituency have to offer and they deserve our congratulations.

“If re-elected, I want to continue to fight for small businesses. I want to ensure we remain in the EU single market so goods and services are affordable, ensure businesses get the support to train staff and grow, and to implement legislation to ensure they aren’t hindered by late payments from larger businesses.

“All members and staff who work at the Colville Park Golf and Country Club deserve our recognition for their contributions which have made the Club so popular. The staff who cook the meals, pull the pints, and maintain the grounds; and the members who have built a community and promoted sports to local people have made the Club a local favourite.”
