Many thanks to our fantastic parish volunteers Briony, Edna, Henry, Jill and Libby for meeting with Dr Julian Lewis MP for New Forest East as part of our Parliament in your Parish campaign on Friday 10th September . It was lovely that you were able to meet face to face with Dr Lewis and share with him your concerns about climate change and debt cancellation for the poorest countries.
Jill told me that “The meeting was extremely successful; a frank, open exchange of views. Dr Lewis made us very welcome, encouraging us to send in questions he could ask in “the house”. He also wants us to continue meeting on a regular basis, which we all felt to be a very positive move. It was delightful meeting up with other CAFOD supporters, I think we all enjoyed the hour we spent with Dr Lewis, he was very generous with his time!”
There is still time to arrange a meeting with your MP before COP26 in November so do get in touch if you would like support and to find out which parishes are in your constituency by emailing email@example.com
