TWO STUDENTS from Angus College are helping a local MSP move into cyber space.

Ross Anderson and Lisa Strachan, who are both in their final year of a HND in interactive media and web development were selected to design a new website for Graeme Dey, SNP MSP for Angus South.

And their hard work and effort is beginning to pay-off with their creation already starting to take shape.

Ross (20), who after graduating will move to the University of Abertay to study a web design and development course, said: “Designing the site and coming up with solutions to the problems we have encountered has been a challenge but it’s been enjoyable.

While Lisa (18), who will shortly start her new post as an electronic designer at Crystal Kitchens and Bathrooms added: “It is a great experience and is allowing me the chance to test my skills.

The new site will feature a host of information relating to Mr Dey’s work in his constituency and in the Scottish Parliament. It will also include a biography page, and an up-to-date list of constituency surgeries.

Mr Dey, a self-confessed technophobe said: “The site looks wonderful and I couldn’t be happier with how it is going.”

The website, www.graemedeymsp.co.uk is expected to go live by the end of June.
