Three young people from Carshalton and Wallington journeyed up to Westminster last Thursday (27 January) to meet local MP Tom Brake and attend a tea party at 10 Downing Street.

Mr Brake helped organise the visit for tea with Cherie Booth as a special treat. The young tea party-goers are already very civic-minded: Amy Carlse (age 13) from Carshalton took part in a political essay contest, Joe Reid (15) from Carshalton volunteers locally and Khalid el-Kaddi (10) from Wallington delivers literature on behalf of his local Neighbourhood Watch.

Mr Brake said,

"One of the best parts of my job is being able to meet young people who are passionate about our community and who give great consideration to how they can help make Sutton a better place to live. I hope that Amy, Joe and Khalid were inspired by the visit to Downing Street, because we can never have too many good citizens."

    If you are a resident of the Carshalton and Wallington constituency and are writing to discuss any issue that Parliament or government is responsible for, you must provide your home address as MPs are generally only permitted to act on behalf of constituents.

    If you are not a constituent, you do not need to provide your address, but the matters we can deal with are more limited and you may wish to contact your local MP in the first instance.

    • If you agree, Tom Brake MP, the Liberal Democrats, and their elected representatives may use the information you provide to contact you about issues you may find of interest. Some of the contacts may be automated. You can opt out of these contacts at any time by contacting us.
