Michael Gove MP is inviting everyone in Surrey Heath to get involved in UK Parliament Week (UKPW), an annual event spreading the word about what Parliament is, what it does and how you can get involved. It’s a great way to find out new things about UK Parliament or be reminded of things you might’ve forgotten!
UKPW is taking place from 6-12 November. Youth groups, community organisations and schools in constituencies across the United Kingdom have already signed up to join in this year. Last year over one million people took part in every nation and region of the UK, and many countries all over the world.
Everyone who signs up for UK Parliament Week will be posted a free kit packed with resources, including a booklet (with information and activity ideas tailored for youth groups, primary and secondary schools, or adults), a ballot box, bunting, stickers and a unique ‘The Ayes Have It’ board game. As well as exploring UK Parliament and ways to get involved, this year’s UKPW throws a spotlight on the various roles and people who help to keep our Parliament running.
“UK Parliament Week is an excellent opportunity to educate young people on how they can get involved on issues they care about and play their part in our democracy. I very much encourage schools across Surrey Heath take part, helping to inspire the next generation to get involved and explore UK Parliament.”
Fran Jeens, Head of Education and Engagement at UK Parliament, said:
“UK Parliament Week is a great opportunity for people of all ages to get informed about how they can engage with UK Parliament to make a difference. Every year it’s fantastic to see so many people actively take part in UK Parliament Week. We look forward to lots of UKPW activities taking place in Surrey Heath.”
