UK Parliament week celebrated locally

Created on 03/11/2020 @ 10:09

Craig Williams, MP for Montgomeryshire, will be taking part in UK Parliament Week this week, and is encouraging local groups to join a UK-wide conversation about democracy, people power and making change happen.

UK Parliament Week is an annual festival taking place from November 1-7, that engages people from across the UK with their UK Parliament, exploring what it means to them and empowering them to get involved.

This year marks 10 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 children and young people, and how they can work with UK Parliament to bring about change.

Community groups, local organisations and schools representing every constituency across the United Kingdom have signed up to be part of the conversation.

Speaking ahead of UK Parliament Week, Mr Williams MP said: “As the MP for Montgomeryshire I welcome the involvement of people 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.”

Although it had been arranged for Mr Williams to visit a number of schools and organisations during Parliament Week, sadly these are not now possible due to current Covid-19 restrictions. However, online sessions have been arranged instead and Craig is talking with groups from Ysgol Uwchradd Caereinion High School, the Focus Community School in Sarn, Montgomery Church in Wales Primary School, Montgomery Rangers, and 1st Llanidloes Brownies, Guides and Rangers.

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.
