The pair, accompanied by Labour activists, engaged with the local community and business owners along Main Street in Kilwinning, discussing the forthcoming council by-election on 9th May.

During the visit, conversations centred on the support needed for local traders to thrive and the potential impact of new policies. Sarwar took to social media to share his experiences: "The sun was shining in Kilwinning this morning! Our candidate in the upcoming council by-election Mary Hume showed me around her beautiful town and told me people here are proud, but they’ve been let down (by the SNP). On 9th May we can change that and deliver the change Kilwinning needs."

Mary Hume commented on the visit, saying, “Having Anas in Kilwinning was brilliant. Our campaign has been working incredibly hard, speaking to voters over the last few weeks. People have been repeatedly telling us that Kilwinning is being let down by the SNP Council and Anas heard the same from people in the town centre.”

She added, “He also heard direct from some of local businesses who are doing everything in their power to bring more people into the town centre. They told us how if SNP Councillors had succeeded in introducing town centre parking charges it would have crippled their business. It’s clear they need more support and I will be a champion for them in the Council if elected on 9th May.”

The visit highlighted the key issues and concerns of the Kilwinning electorate as the by-election approaches, with local leaders seeking to influence the outcome through direct dialogue and engagement with the community.
