ARE you due to celebrate your 20th birthday this summer?

The Scottish Parliament has launched a search for all the babies who were born on July 1, 1999 – the same day that the Scottish Parliament was established.

To help find the young people, the parliament has released a picture of the July 1 babies taken at Holyrood on their 10th birthday in 2009, right.

Back in 1999, on the same day the Parliament was assumed its legal powers, 163 children were born in Scotland.

On the 10th anniversary in 2009 parliamentary officials managed to locate 145 children, 142 of whom travelled from across Scotland, the UK, Canada, the USA and even the Faroe Islands to attend the celebrations on July 1.

The parliament is now asking any young people who share its birthday to come forward, so they can be invited to be a part of the 20-year anniversary celebrations. This will include an invitation to the events planned for Saturday, June 29, when the Parliament will open its doors.

The Presiding Officer, the Rt Hon Ken Macintosh MSP said: “The 1 July babies were at the heart of our 10th anniversary back in 2009 when more than 140 children from across Scotland and beyond joined us to celebrate. ”
