Martin Whitfield MSP is seeking suggestions for a Local Hero who has made a positive difference to the lives of others to attend a special event on Saturday 29th June to mark 25 years of the Scottish Parliament.

The event will mark almost 25 years to the day since the Scottish Parliament was officially opened on 1st July 1999. It will also celebrate the achievements of the Parliament over the last 25 years as well as Scottish culture.

Launching his search, Martin Whitfield MSP said:

“I know many people in East Lothian are committed to giving their time and energy selflessly to their local community. They do so in order to make a positive contribution to the lives of others in their area, very often without recognition or thanks.

“We want to celebrate the achievements of our Local Heroes across every constituency and region in Scotland to help mark the significant milestone of the 25th anniversary of the Scottish Parliament.

“I am keen to receive suggestions for a Local Hero from our area, perhaps from their friends, family or work colleagues, maybe even from potential Local Heroes themselves. If you’ve got a good suggestion, please get in touch and let me know.”

To suggest a Local Hero to potentially attend the 25th anniversary ceremony, please email by Tuesday 28th May at the latest.
