MEP hosts visit from Norfolk schoolchildren Dec03
Conservative Euro MP for the East of England, recently hosted a visit to
the European Parliament in Brussels from a group of young Norfolk school
The group of twenty
children, aged 14 to 15, came from a range of different backgrounds from
schools across Norfolk. The aim of the visit was to learn more about the
work of the EU and its institutions.
The visit was
organised by Bashir Khanbhai MEP on behalf of the Active Citizenship
initiative for Norfolk County Council and Norfolk Youth and Community
Service, which supports young people as active citizens and helps them
express an opinion about decisions taken for them.
During their visit,
the group met with cross party Eastern Region MEPs and representatives
from the European Commission.
Brussels, Mr. Khanbhai said:
am delighted to welcome such a bright and articulate group of young people
to the European Parliament. I think they have gained a great deal from
this experience and will be taking a positive message of the EU back to
their friends and families in the UK."
