State Opening of Parliament - Saturday 2 July 2016
The SWC was privileged to be invited by the Scottish Parliament to take part in the ‘Ridings’ parade as part of the State Opening of Parliament. This event only takes place every 5 years and formally marks the beginning of the session of Parliament following the election in May.
Staff, Board members, volunteers and supporters of the organisation descended on Edinburgh for this memorable event. We were dressed as suffragettes!! It rained a little but the sun shone while we walked down the Royal Mile. Have a look at our fantastic costumes!
