SOPA at Scottish Women’s Convention on 18 July 2015

The Scottish Women’s Convention held a morning conference specifically for older women, in the Grosvenor Hotel, Hillhead. SOPA had a stall and Glenda Watt and Val Bissland made contact with participants as they arrived. It was an opportunity to make people aware of SOPA’s up and coming events in the Parliament and to gather opinions, in particular, on two different designs for a leaflet to publicise SOPA’s agenda. This on-the-spot feedback was very useful. Go to the Home Page to open the final leaflet.
