The Lewes constituency has been named the 27th best in the country for participation in UK Parliament Week 2020 events.
UK Parliament Week is an annual festival taking place from 1-7 November, that engages people from across the UK with their UK Parliament, explores what it means to them and empowers them to get involved.
There were seven events held in the Lewes constituency to mark UK Parliament Week 2020, making Lewes the 27th most active constituency out of 650.
In total there were 8,676 events across the country, with 986,815 people taking part.
Maria Caulfield MP said “As MP for the Lewes constituency I welcome the involvement of people in the constituency during 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, and I’m excited to see so many organisations and local groups taking part.”
“It is great news that out of 650 constituencies Lewes was the 27th best for participation in Parliament Week events. I am hoping that this year we can do even better.”
