Bute House

The following reports are from the Scotsman of the 24th October 2017:

I made a film about Bute House that I shared with the First Minister in December of 2016. I had heard Nicola Sturgeon speaking in the parliamentary chamber about the Christmas trees that she had in Bute House. In sharing my film with the First Minister that I shared the view that Scotland welcomes the healthy growth of trees, and people, all nature, land and culture.

Understandably the First Minister was not able to reply herself but I received a kind response from David Thompson of her Ministerial Private Office

“I wanted to let you know how interesting and informative I found the film. I have responsibility for Bute House and thought I knew most of its history. I will make sure that the film is shared with my colleagues who work in the building.”
