Fiona Hyslop MSP Supports Local Linlithgow Olympics

Linlithgow MSP, Fiona Hyslop attended the Lin’Lympics (Linlithgow Olympic Games) to support the 11 schools(1) throughout the Linlithgow cluster who represented a country in their own mini Olympic and Paralympic Games on May 9th.

Commenting on the day, Fiona said;

“It has been a tremendous day, 1700 pupils cheered as the Olympic flame was lit at Linlithgow Rose Football Ground and a choir sang to the crowd from the director’s box.

“All schools have done extremely well in developing the theme and values of the Olympics and Paralympics, ensuring that the day was enjoyable and accessible to all.
“It has been great to see the pupils come together for this event and really showcase the true meaning of community spirit.”
