MEP hosts visit from Norfolk schoolchildren Dec03

Bashir Khanbhai, 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 children.


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.


Speaking from Brussels, Mr. Khanbhai said:


"I 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."
