Local Democracy Week

Local Democracy Week is one of the standout dates in the Parliamentary calendar for Siobhain with the School Councils from primary schools across the constituency invited to Parliament for a guided tour and a discussion about what democracy means to them.

Over 100 students visited and, without exception, were a credit to their schools.

The week continued with a visit from Merton Youth Parliament, with 30 students aged 11-19 from across our secondary schools and colleges coming together to have their say on how we can make Merton a wonderful place to live. The students thoroughly enjoyed their visit and can take the inspiration of Parliament back to Merton Youth Parliament at their next meeting.
