Mark Jenkinson MP is inviting everyone in the Workington constituency to get involved in UK Parliament Week and join a UK-wide conversation about our democracy.
UK Parliament Week is an annual festival, this year, taking place from 1-7 November, that engages people from across the UK with their UK Parliament, explores what it means to them and empowers them to get involved.
This year marks ten 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 you and how you can work with UK Parliament to bring about change. Community groups, local organisations and schools representing every constituency across the United Kingdom have already signed up to be part of the conversation.
Mark Jenkinson said: “I would encourage my constituents in Workington to join activities during UK Parliament Week 2020. It is important that voters and future voters have an understanding how vital their participation is in our democracy. I am pleased that there are a number of organisations, schools and local groups taking part with events across my constituency.
Please do let me know if your organisation or school is holding an event to mark Parliament week by emailing me at firstname.lastname@example.org or by tagging me in your pictures on social media.”
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.
