Holyrood PR Episode 108


Holyrood PR Episode 108


With two of our client’s hosting major events in the capital, we’ve been working
hard creating buzz around a conference aimed at tackling organised crime,
piping up for Scottish tradition and offering the people of Angus a new farming

First up from UGG boots made of dog skin to vodka laced with paint stripper,
the Scottish Business Resilience Centre highlighted the dangers of buying
fake goods at Scotland’s first Anti-Illicit Trade Conference which was held at
Murrayfield stadium last week.
The 2 day summit showcased the largest & most diverse range of counterfeit goods ever to be seen in Scotland and held interactive events with key speakers including justice secretary Kenny MacAskill.
News of the conference not only made column inches in local and national press
including The Sun, the BBC, The Metro & The Herald but also featured on air on
local radio station Radio Forth and enjoyed a prime time slot on STV’s 6’oclock

Next up, although Sundays are usually our day of rest, this certainly was not the
case this weekend as account executive Melissa Clark and I, donned the tartan
to attend the Scottish Schools Pipe Band Championships.
Over 600 music made school children descended upon Broughton High School to face the music and compete in the most prestigious competition of its kind.
The championships were a great success and after tweeting, facebooking and instagramming live updates and co-ordinating the press throughout the day, we even got the chance to pick
up the pipes ourselves with a little help from the Govan schools pipe band.
The story was featured in The Times, The Herald and the Daily Mail.

And finally news of our story that Birkenbush farm, near Forfar has come onto
the market for offers over £1.97 million enjoyed double page spreads in both The
Courier and The Press & Journal.
The 210 acre estate is being marketed by Bell Ingram so for more information visit http://www.bellingram.co.uk.
