Local MP, Caroline Dinenage, is inviting everyone in the Gosport Constituency to get involved in UK Parliament Week and ‘have your say’ on the issues that matter to you most.
UK Parliament Week is a UK-wide festival taking place from 2-8 November, which aims to engage people, especially young people, from different backgrounds and communities, with the UK Parliament and empower them to get involved.
This is a great opportunity to be part of a thriving democracy, ask questions, think critically and engage with the UK Parliament. Schools, museums, libraries, faith communities and youth organisations representing every constituency across the United Kingdom have already signed up to be part of the conversation.
In 2018, UK Parliament Week reached almost 1 million people, with more than 8,100 activities. This year’s UK Parliament Week festival is expected to be the largest ever with even more activities and people taking part.
“I would encourage everyone to get involved with UK Parliament Week 2019. There is something for everyone, including schools and community groups, allowing you to engage with Parliament, explore how it affects Gosport, Stubbington, Lee on the Solent and Hill Head and find out how you can participate.”
David Clark, Head of Education and Engagement at UK Parliament, said:

Schools, workplaces and community groups across the Gosport Constituency have a chance to have their say on the issues they care about most.
