I had the pleasure of meeting Andy Gibson, franchisee of McDonalds in Finnieston this morning and received a tour of the restaurant.
One of the best things about parliamentary recess is getting the opportunity to get out and about and visit local businesses across Glasgow Central. It was great to meet up with Andy and his excellent team of staff today and to learn more about McDonalds and how they operate.
McDonalds have done a lot in recent years to diversify the food they sell and get more involved in the community, which is to be warmly welcomed. Employing over 70 staff is also a great boost for the local economy in Finnieston and it was really nice to meet some of the staff during my visit this morning.
I met with Which on Friday at Central Station to discuss their Calling Time on Nuisance Calls. I’m aware that lots of people find these annoying at best, and intimidating and distressing at worst.
Lots of people just hang up the phone, but Which have created a means of easily logging calls so action can be taken on the companies involved. I’m happy to take up any problem issues, but the website is available here: http://www.which.co.uk/campaigns/nuisance-calls-and-texts/
