In February 2019, SRA had an exhibition at Holyrood to highlight the Rural Parliament and other aspects of our work. It was a chance to talk with Mairi Gougeon, Minister for Rural Affairs and the Natural Environment, and to many other MSPs. SRA volunteers were invited to tell politicians why SRA is important to rural Scotland.
The 2018 Rural Parliament was held in Stranraer. There was great support from local groups, including the catering students from D&G College, who stole the show.
