Christopher Pincher MP is calling on everyone in Tamworth and local villages to get involved in UK Parliament Week and join a United Kingdom-wide education about our democracy, people power and making change happen.
UK Parliament Week is an annual festival taking place from 1-7 November, that engages people from across the four nations with their UK Parliament, explores what it means to them and empowers them to get involved.
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.
Christopher Pincher MP said:
“As your local MP, I encourage the involvement of residents 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 am pleased to see so many organisations and local groups taking part.
“Last year we came 14th out of 650 constituencies and this year I am determined to get to the number one spot! But to do that we need people to get involved, local groups to sign up and for schools to get stuck in. Looking at my emails, I can see some Brownies groups and even the cadets signing up and I cannot wait to see who else gets involved.”
Last year, over 1.2 million people took part in UK Parliament week in every nation and region of the UK, alongside countries all over the world.
David Clark, Head of Education and Engagement at UK Parliament, added:
“There are many exciting activities taking place for this year’s UK Parliament Week, including those happening in Tamworth
“Organisations, local community groups and schools across Tamworth 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.”
