Amy Patience from Hopeman has been chosen by the Scottish National Party as their candidate for Heldon & Laich Ward in this year’s Council Elections, which will take place on 4th May.

Amy Patience said:

“It is a real honour to be standing for election to Moray Council for the Heldon and Laich Ward. It is the area of Moray that I have chosen to make my home and bring up my daughter and I want to make a difference for her and for people right across the ward - from Lossiemouth to Burghead and Hopeman to Mosstowie.

“The services provided by the Council from education, to social care, to waste collection and roads maintenance affect us all and I want to help ensure that our communities in Heldon & Laich have a strong voice in Moray Council.

“I believe I can be that strong voice and that is why I am asking for the support of the voters in Heldon & Laich.”

Amy Patience Biography:

Amy was born in Inverness and spent her childhood in Forres. She has always lived in the Moray area, and settled in Hopeman with her daughter Eve, who attends Hopeman Primary School.

Since moving to Hopeman, Amy has become involved in many aspects of the community, and especially enjoys being a member of Hopeman Amateur Dramatic Society which performs an annual pantomime and other events throughout the year. In her spare time Amy dabbles in landscape photography, and likes to travel around Moray taking pictures, often with the family dog in tow.

Working relief hours at Hopeman Primary has allowed Amy to explore her interests academically and begin a degree in History and Politics. This ignited Amy’s interest in local government and, coupled with a love for the area she is proud to call home, inspired her to want to help and make a difference to the lives of people of Heldon and Laich.
