AN MP HAS lent his backing to an annual festival that aims to inspire interest in parliament, politics and democracy.

Robin Millar, MP for Aberconwy, is encouraging residents in Aberconwy to get involved in UK Parliament Week which takes place from November 1-7.

Last year more than 1.2 million people took part in the event.

Mr Millar said: “As the MP for Aberconwy I welcome the involvement of people in UK Parliament Week 2020. I am determined to ensure that our voters and citizens of tomorrow understand how vital their participation is in our democracy.

"The slogan of UK Parliament week is – “It Starts with You.” And it does. So find out more – get off the side lines, get involved and be part of the debate.”

David Clark, head of education and engagement at UK Parliament, said: “There are many exciting activities taking place for this year’s UK Parliament Week, including those happening in Aberconwy.

“Organisations, local community groups and schools across Aberconwy have a chance to get involved and have their say on issues they care about the most.”

Those who sign up for UK Parliament Week will be sent a free kit packed with resources. Visit to find out more.
