Richard is inviting everyone across North East Bedfordshire to get involved in UK Parliament Week and join a UK-wide conversation about our democracy, people power and making change happen.
UK Parliament Week is an annual event taking place from 1-7 November to engage people about the work and role of the UK Parliament.
This year the focus is how small actions can lead to big changes, encouraging participants to get informed, take action and make an impact on issues they care about. It is a great opportunity to examine what issues are important to you and how you can work with UK Parliament to bring about change. Community groups, local organisations and schools across the United Kingdom have already signed up to be part of the conversation.
Richard Fuller, MP for North East Bedfordshire, said:
I encourage people across North East Bedfordshire to get involved with UK Parliament Week 2021. It is so important that our current and future voters understand how vital their participation is in our democracy and I’m excited to see so many organisations and local groups taking part. Sign up today to receive your free kit.
Last year, almost one million people took part in UK Parliament Week, despite the challenging circumstances caused by Covid-19.
Those who sign up for UK Parliament Week will be sent a free kit packed with resources, including a booklet, a ballot box, stickers, and a packet of “sow the seeds of democracy” chilli seeds. There are tailored kits available for youth groups, primary and secondary schools, and each nation of the UK.
