FALKIRK East Labour MSP Cathy Peattie painted the town red on Sunday – when she celebrated the party’s local success in the May 3 elections.The popular parliamentarian hosted a celebration in Bo’ness Library to thank party local workers for all their support during the run-up to this year’s Holyrood and Council polls.
Cathy held her seat – which covers Grangemouth – despite stiff opposition from the SNP. Labour also went on to become the largest party within Falkirk Council and formed the new ruling administration, ousting the Nationalists from power.
On Sunday night, senior party figures gathered to celebrate their success. The MSP even treated them to a few of her songs during an impromptu sing-song.
Among the guests were Falkirk Council Labour leader Linda Gow, Provost Pat Reid, Economic Development Convener Cllr Craig Martin and local Grangemouth councillors Allyson Black and Alastair McNeill.
Cllr Black said: “It’s been a busy time for Cathy and local councillors since May. However, we felt it was appropriate to mark the hard work done by the party and its workers earlier this year. Hopefully everyone had a good time.”
