MP for Perth and North Perthshire, Pete Wishart, has officially opened his new Parliamentary office in Blairgowrie.
The move follows almost 20 years in their former Blairgowrie office on Perth Street and represents a substantial improvement to the office environment for constituents seeking assistance and parliamentary staff alike.
A plaque was unveiled on Saturday 31st October to commemorate the opening by long serving office volunteer Mrs Barbara Cook.
Commenting on the move Pete Wishart said:
"With the severe cuts to welfare our communities have been enduring since 2010 I have seen constituent cases increase dramatically so it was essential that I secured a more efficient office with which to work on this surge in demand.
“I would like to thank our Blairgowrie office staff for creating this wonderful new facility and making sure the case work was kept up to date over the transition period. I also pay tribute to the two decades of volunteer support from Barbara Cook and many others in our office."
The new office is at:
17-19 Leslie Street
