Fiona said ” I was delighted to welcome Charlie Flanagan to Linlithgowbridge as part of his delegations visit to Scotland to promote increased partnership between Scotland and Ireland.

“Linlithgow and Linlithgowbridge are very centrally located with good connectivity for firms working all over Scotland and the fact these companies have chosen to base themselves here is very welcome. Their numbers initially will be small but they will be highly skilled specialist jobs and this all helps put the town on the map for inward investment.”
