Stourbridge MP visits Oldswinford school

Stourbridge MP, Suzanne Webb has visited Oldswinford C of E Primary School to meet staff and pupils and talk about climate change.

Ms Webb spoke with the Year 4 students on Friday. They have been learning about climate change, including the climate coalition's green heart 'show the love' campaign.

The students have also been learning about the Amazon Rainforest and how actions here in Stourbridge are impacting the wider world in terms of climate change, deforestation and endangered species.

The MP then took part in a Q&A session and she explained how she limits the amount of single use plastic she uses daily and in her home. In her capacity as an MP, she told the pupils she was passionate about protecting green spaces and has worked hard to protect Corbett Meadow.

She was also asked what it is like to be an MP, about raising the issue of climate change with the Prime Minister, the use of palm oil, and how the government is planning to find sustainable energy.

The children each wrote Suzanne a 'show the love' green heart card with little messages for her to take away with her to Westminster. Suzanne said:

“Many thanks to Year 4 at Oldswinford for a brilliant visit where I met so many informed pupils who care passionately about their environment here in Stourbridge but also across the world.

“I always really enjoy a Q&A session at every school I visit and it’s important to know about and understand what our children are thinking and feeling about a range of issues.

“The school’s focus on the climate is to be commended and I thank the head Jo Seker and her staff for allowing me to visit a great school.”
