Press comment from Fiona Hyslop MSP following the African Scottish Expo 2023:

“I was pleased to attend the African Scottish Expo 2023, held by West Lothian African Women’s Network in Bathgate on Saturday 23rd September.

“The event was a great success and showcased African and Scottish food, art and culture with a variety of stalls at Bathgate Precinct.

“This year’s theme was ‘Connecting Diverse Communities’ and the event provided an excellent opportunity for communities from across West Lothian to come together in celebration of African and Scottish culture.

“I would like to congratulate the West Lothian African Women’s network, an excellent organisation, who did an incredible job of putting the Expo together. I hope to see another successful Expo in 2024.”
