As part of the Love Your Neighbourhood Campaign, 39 North Herts residents attended the Houses of Parliament and met with Sir Oliver Heald. We spoke to local residents to capture their experiences of the day.
“I was fortunate indeed to join in your well organised trip today. The whole time was so enjoyable. It exceeded my expectations and I wish to thank you all very much for your care.” – Michael Balls
“I had a great time and it was really lovely to see the inside of such halls of power.” – Oonagh Sherlock
“Today was wonderful and very informative. The event was well organised and the main thing was the opportunity to address our questions to Sir Oliver Heald. We can get a feeling for how local MPs address our local needs. Speaking directly to an MP was the highlight of the day.” – Phil Trivedi
