Order, order!

We were joined for our Parliament Week programme by the girls from the 3rd Holborn Brownies.

We  found a series of Parliamentary words from their concealed places around the Centre and tried to put them into the right order to illustrate the system.  Katie then spoke about how Parliament works and explained some of the terms used.

There were a few fascinating facts along the way!

We learned how an election works and were given a ballot paper each.

6 leaders then each gave a “manifesto” of one thing that they would do if they were elected.

The votes were made secretly and placed into our special ballot box.

Sophie then counted the votes under strictly controlled conditions and announced Katie to be the winner!

At the end of the meeting, the Brownies presented us with the results of their fundraising for our Great Big Birthday Year appeal£228!

Well done, and thank you all!
