North-East MSPs Encourage Constituents to Help Mark 20th Anniversary Holyrood Celebrations

North-East MSPs are encouraging constituents born on the day powers were officially transferred from Westminster to the Scottish Parliament to join in 20th anniversary celebrations at Holyrood.

It comes after 163 children were invited to mark the 10th anniversary of the event a decade ago.

Now, Aberdeenshire East MSP Gillian Martin and Banffshire and Buchan Coast MSP Stewart Stevenson, are calling on those born on the special date to join them once again as Holyrood hosts several events.

Chief Executive of the Scottish Parliament, Paul Grice, said other events will include the launch of a new public exhibition telling the story of the Parliament and a national photography competition to find the best images illustrating Holyrood’s 20-year history.

Commenting, Gillian Martin MSP and Stewart Stevenson MSP said:

“The Scottish Parliament will be hosting a series of events to mark this significant occasion when some reserved powers from Westminster were devolved to the then newly formed Scottish Parliament.

“We would like to hear from any of the young adults who attended the 10th anniversary and would be delighted to hear from them once again so they can come along to the event at Holyrood later this year.

“It is sure to be a memorable few days and we would be delighted if constituents who were born on July 1st 1999 could join us.”
