I was delighted to receive the Certificate of Achievement from the Education Service. It was awarded because 17 U.K. Parliament Week activities took place in Walsall South . This placed us in joint 25th place of 650 constituencies. This is brilliant news for Walsall South .
Taking part in Parliament Week activities is a great way to learn about the democratic process.
This year Parliament Week will run from 1 – 7 November 2020. When you sign up, You will get a free kit packed with goodies including an activity booklet, bunting, a ballot box, stickers, and more. You can pick and choose from the options in the booklet to tailor your UK Parliament Week activity to suit your school.
