It won’t have escaped District Diary readers’ attention that this month has been a particularly turbulent one in the world of politics.
With Westminster full of tumultuous debate at present, it is doubly pleasing to get back home to the constituency to meet with local residents, community groups, business and schools.
Last month, I was delighted to visit Llanharan Primary School to catch up with all of the teachers and support staff who work so hard day in, day out to provide a high quality education for our local children.
During my visit, I held a question and answer session with Year 5 and Year 6 pupils. The issues ranged from Brexit to the reasons why MPs can’t clap in the House of Commons, and ended with one pupil asking why MPs aren’t thrown out of the class like school children are when they misbehave – a point I wholeheartedly agree with! I was definitely put through my paces, and had a fantastic afternoon.
What really struck me was what a diligent and polite group of pupils they were. A real credit to their school and the wider community, I have a feeling that there were some budding politicians of the future present, which was very pleasing to see!
I’m always keen to visit as many local schools, community projects, businesses and other enterprises across the constituency. Please do give my office a call on 01656 860 034 or email email@example.com if you would like to invite me along to something you’re planning in the near future. I’ll be more than happy to come along if I am able to!
As always, if you’d like to raise any issues or concerns with me as your local MP, please do get in touch with my office and I will do my best to help you.
