Have you been to the Houses of Parliament?

North Herts CVS is hosting a coach trip to the Houses of Parliament, from 9am to 3pm on Monday 8th June, with the aim to provide a great day out for North Herts residents and connect people with Parliamentary democracy.

With the general election high on the agenda it is a perfect opportunity for local people to find out more about Parliament, its function and role in today’s society.

On 8th June, visitors can enjoy a one hour tour of the Houses of Parliament and participate in a brief question and answer session with local MP, Sir Oliver Heald.

Michal Siewniak who is responsible for community development said: “We hope that our planned activity will help to address the issue of civic engagement, enthuse residents to get involved in democratic processes, intensify the dialogue between institutions and voters.  Finally, we hope that it will help to build a platform for community activism.”

This Houses of Parliament trip is an initiative which is part of the 100 Day Love Your Neighbourhood campaign, hosted by North Herts CVS. The campaign, funded by North Herts Local Strategic Partnership, will commence in June and deliver a wide range of events across neighbourhoods in Hitchin and Royston.
