Visit to St Michael's Primary
Updated: Nov 18
I had the pleasure of meeting and speaking with Year 6 students at St Michael's Primary School in Westbourne this week.
Each of the classes I met asked me a variety of questions about why I was in politics, why I wanted to be the local MP and what I would do to improve the local area.
I was delighted also to hear the views of the young students about what would make the most difference in their area.
Some of the ideas they mentioned included:
Better street lighting
Litter picking on the beach and town centre
Banning smoking and getting rid of vape shops
Filling empty shops in the town centre
Stopping drug dealing
Better police presence
Many of them also asked me about how to tackle homelessness and drug use on our streets.
The school kindly produced a short video about my visit. You can watch it here.
