Some of our older readers may remember a time when the Scots Independent premises were manned by an employee who made sure all subscribers and distributors got their newspapers. This slick operation was carried out by Robert (Bob) Campbell who was also well known for his excellent organisation of The Bannockburn Rally.

It is with sadness that we pass on the news from his family that Robert passed away on Saturday 2nd January 2016. He will be missed by many.

Funeral service is at St Ninian’s Old Parish Church, Stirling on Friday 15th January 2016 at 11 a.m., thereafter to Logie Cemetery. All family and friends respectfully invited. Donations in lieu of flowers to the Beatson Oncology Centre.
