Cabinet to meet in Cumnock

Local residents invited to join the discussion.

First Minister Nicola Sturgeon and her Cabinet will meet in Cumnock on Monday 18 June to celebrate the Year of Young People.

Cabinet Secretaries will take part in a full day of events in and around the town, joined by members of East Ayrshire Council’s Children and Young People Cabinet and local school pupils, culminating in a public discussion at Cumnock Town Hall led by the First Minister.

The Cumnock event is the latest in a series of more than 45 Cabinet meetings in towns and cities across Scotland, including Aberdeen, Alloa, Cupar, Dumfries, Greenock, Inverness, Oban and Ullapool.

First Minister Nicola Sturgeon said:

“This is an opportunity for me and my Cabinet to meet local residents, community groups and businesses in Cumnock and East Ayrshire as we mark the Year of Young People.

“I would encourage everyone in the local community, but especially young people, to attend our discussion at Cumnock Town Hall. The Year of Young People 2018 is a global first and I look forward to meeting young people from Cumnock to hear about their achievements, talents and the issues that really matter to them.

“Of course people of all ages are welcome - this government is open and transparent and will take on board the thoughts and concerns of everyone living and working in the Cumnock area.”


The public discussion will run from 13:30 to 15:00 at Cumnock Town Hall, Glaisnock Street, Cumnock KA18 1BY.

Entry to the public discussion is free, but seats are limited and must be booked in advance.
