Colin Beattie, MSP for Midlothian North and Musselburgh, was pleased to welcome the members of the Grans Group to the Scottish Parliament. The Grans Group was originally set up by grans who took their grandchildren to the nursery at First Step, a community project for families with young children. Now it consists of 11 members who enjoy meeting each Wednesday to chat, learn new skills, or go out on trips together. This year happens to be their 10th anniversary and Colin was excited to be a part of it. The Grans Group was able to take a tour of the Parliament building before meeting with Colin.
Afterwards Colin remarked,
“It was a delight to be able to invite the Grans Group to the Parliament. Groups such as these provide a real focus for people in our community to get together and learn new skills while making friendships.”
