Fiona Highlights Linlithgow Burgh Trust in Civic Trust 50th Anniversary Debate

Linlithgow Constituency MSP, Fiona Hyslop has spoken in a debate at the Scottish Parliament marking the 50th Anniversary of the Scottish Civic Trust. Fiona referenced Linlithgow Burgh Trust as she spoke about the importance of local heritage and its link to the future as well as our past.

Fiona said:

“The Linlithgow Burgh Trust is made up of wise, passionate people who are determined to promote the town in which they work and in which I live.

“It is important to remember that local civic trusts help us both to understand our heritage and to look to a sustainable future. They are involved in planning how their local town can develop for the future. The volunteers who take part in all the affiliated groups celebrate and record their local heritage.

“I congratulate the Scottish Civic Trust on its 50th anniversary and say a big thank you to the organisation and all its employees, supporters, friends and volunteers who have helped the trust to achieve so much since its foundation in 1967.”
