THE Meon Valley MP is inviting her constituents to get involved in UK Parliament Week.
Flick Drummond wants as many people as possible to have their say in the nation-wide conversation about democracy and people power.
UK Parliament Week is an annual festival taking place from November 1 to 7.
Flick said: “As the MP for Meon Valley I welcome the involvement of residents in my constituency during UK Parliament Week 2020. I am determined to ensure that our voters and citizens of tomorrow understand how vital their participation is in our democracy, and I’m excited to see so many organisations and local groups taking part.”
"This year marks ten years of UK Parliament Week. It is a great opportunity to be part of a thriving democracy and look ahead to the next 10 years, thinking about what issues are important to you and how you can work with UK Parliament to bring about change.
"Community groups, local organisations and schools representing every constituency across the United Kingdom have already signed up to be part of the conversation."
Last year, more than 1.2 million people took part in the event.
David Clark, head of education and engagement at UK Parliament, said: “There are many exciting activities taking place for this year’s UK Parliament Week, including those happening in Meon Valley Constituency.
“Organisations, local community groups and schools have a chance to get empowered and have their say on issues they care about the most. Change starts with you and UK Parliament Week is a great way to learn how you can make a difference.”
