A GROUP of Winchester primary school children visited the House of Commons recently.

Steve Brine, MP for Winchester and Chandler’s Ford, invited teachers and pupils from Weeke Primary School’s Newspaper club to visit Parliament on January 8.

The group took a tour of the House and had the opportunity to quiz the MP about his job.

Mr Brine said afterwards: “I really enjoyed having the group here, and what a super bunch of kids. I read the Weeke Whizz Magazine they publish, and it is a wonderful piece of work.”

Weeke pupil Charlotte Prince-Rayner said: “Being in the place where our country’s decision are made, watching the House of Commons in action, and meeting our MP was something I’ll never forget.”
