AN ANNUAL public address in memory of Kathleen McDonald, who sparked the restart of the Yes Musselburgh campaign, has been established.

The inaugural Kathleen McDonald Memorial Talk takes place in the Brunton Hall at 8pm on March 27.

Entitled ‘My Journey To Yes’, the illustrated address will be given by East Lothian researcher and lecturer Jim Fraser.

Former councillor Fraser McAllister, from Musselburgh, said Kathleen, a retired teacher who died last March, became “dedicated to the cause of Scottish independence”.

Questions and a discussion will follow the talk. People can also pick up a free copy of Believe in Scotland’s guide to Scottish independence, Scotland the Brief. Non-members can register for a free ticket via Eventbrite at
