Today is the start of UK Parliament Week. It is a great opportunity to engage with democracy, both local and national, and to learn how Parliament can engage and empower us.
Each year, over 1 million people take part in different UK Parliament activities.
Across Barnsley East, different schools and youth groups will be taking part and I wish them well in all the activities that they are hosting. It’s a great opportunity to learn more about what your elected officials do.
I live in Darfield and each week I go to Westminster to raise different issues, ideas and questions that local people put forward to me.
If you’d like to find out more about my job, or if you’d like me to come and visit your group, then please do get in touch.
