Stevenson And Webster Celebrate Official Opening Of The Parliament

Banff & Buchan MSP Stewart Stevenson and his 'local hero', Andrew Webster of Little Whitefield, Forglen, Banff, Secretary of Friends of Forglen Community Hall, enjoyed a day of celebration at the official opening ceremony of Parliament on Saturday, 30th June. Mr. Stevenson and Mr. Webster took part in the traditional riding procession to the Scottish Parliament alongside other MSPs and their guests. Her Majesty The Queen, HRH The Duke of Edinburgh, Presiding Officers and the First Minister greeted the arrival of the riding procession in front of the Scottish Parliament building to welcome in the new session of Parliament.

Speaking after the ceremonies, Mr. Stevenson said;

"The whole day was a spectacular celebration of the Scottish Parliament's third term and fitted the atmosphere extremely well. All aspects of Scottish culture and life were represented at the ceremonies and it was a particularly memorable occasion for all the local heroes involved and the public who came along to witness the event.

"I was delighted to have Andrew with me as my local hero, as through his work with the Friends of Forglen Community Hall he has contributed hugely to the community of Forglen. His dedication is highly commendable and very deserving of this tribute.

"I personally thoroughly enjoyed the experience and I am looking forward to a third term where cooperation and effective decision making will be the defining features of Scottish politics."
