Joan McAlpine MSP joined local Brownies in Annan as part of UK Parliament Week.

The MSP answered questions about her work as an SNP member for South Scotland and took part in a mock election held by the girls.
Ms McAlpine said:
“I was delighted to see the seventh company is thriving and has a very healthy interest in women’s political representation.  Their work on the suffragettes was fantastic and they all asked very intelligent questions about the work of an MSP.
“I was also very impressed by the dedication of the adult volunteers Toni Owl, Snowy Owl and Barn Owl!”
The mock election involved the brownies splitting into four groups, which each agreed a manifesto.  The winning group advocated, “Snacks at every meeting” while “Crafts at every meeting was a close second”
All the Brownies had parental permission for photographs to be used.
