Otterbourne schoolchildren visit Parliament

Otterbourne Primary School visited the Palace of Westminster on Wednesday 16th October, where they also took the opportunity to meet their local MP.

They took in a tour of the Houses of Parliament before heading over to Westminster Abbey to meet up with Steve Brine for a lively Q&A session.
