As the Scottish Parliament prepares to mark twenty years since it was established, Ms Roseanna Cunningham MSP, Member of the Scottish Parliament for the Perthshire South & Kinross-shire constituency, is highlighting a search that is underway to locate young people born on 1 July 1999 and so will turn twenty on the same day as the Parliament.
Speaking last week Ms Cunningham said:
“2019 is a special year for the Scottish Parliament as it will be 20 years since it came into being.
“To mark this important milestone, a series of events will be taking place throughout the year and, in particular, an event will be held in the Chamber on Saturday the 29th of June and the Parliament will host an open day to which the public are invited.
”On the Parliament’s 10th anniversary, children who were born on the 1st of July 1999 were invited to join in the celebrations and the parliamentary authorities are looking for these young people so that they can be invited back to join in the 20th anniversary celebrations.
“If there is anyone in my constituency who shares their birthday with the parliament I would be delighted to hear from them and pass on their details.”
