UK Parliament Week – what’s going on?

Date: 22nd October 2019 Location: Sections: Scouts

As part of the annual UK Parliament Week the Scouts met Mt Robin Ashby (Lib Dem) to discuss the origins and workings of Government.

Robin responded in a brilliant live ‘Prime Minister’s Questions’ session with Scouts posing their questions in ‘Parliament’ and debating ideas to improve the local community and our country.

This was something we have never tried and we couldn’t have done this without Robin taking his part too. Robin presented the Scouts with ‘House of Commons’ badges and wristbands supplied as part of the information pack material supporting this event.

It was a very revealing session and demonstrated how much the Scouts appreciated the importance of current issues and our own local representative.

Put your phone down and what are you left with? Just teamwork, courage and the skills to succeed.’
