MP Flick Drummond is inviting everyone in Meon Valley to get involved in UK Parliament Week next month and learn about the country’s democracy, people power and making change happen.
The annual event is taking place from 1-7 November to help people from across the UK engage with their UK Parliament and this year marks ten years of the week.
Community groups, local organisations and schools representing every constituency across the United Kingdom have already signed up to be part of the conversation.
Flick said: “UK Parliament Week is a great way for residents in my constituency to get involved in what democracy is and learn more about how parliament works.
“It is important 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.
“I hope many more people in Meon valley will sign up and get involved.”
Last year, over 1.2 million people got involved in UK Parliament week in every nation and region of the UK, alongside countries all over the world.
Those who sign up for UK Parliament Week will be sent a free kit packed with resources, including a booklet, bunting, a ballot box, a poster, stickers and more, which can be tailored for different organisations.
The Week is organised by the UK Parliament Education and Engagement Team, a service seeking to inform and educate all citizens about the work and role of the UK Parliament.
