Dr Kieran Mullan, MP for Crewe and Nantwich, is organising a tea party for Centenarians in honour of David Amess, the MP who was murdered last Autumn.
While an MP, David Amess held ‘Centenarian Tea Parties’ annually in his Southend West Constituency.
Since his death, Kieran has campaigned to make this event a part of UK Parliament Week, as a way for all MPs to honour David’s memory. UK Parliament Week is an annual event which aims to promote the work of Parliament and get people involved with our democracy.
Following Kieran’s campaign, the annual tea party is now one of the activities that people will be taking part in across the country.
Kieran is now calling for anyone who knows someone who is 100 years old or older, who would like to come along to his event in Crewe and Nantwich, to come forward so that they can be invited.
Kieran commented “David was an incredibly hard-working MP who stood up for his Southend constituents over many, many years. The Centenarian Tea Parties are just part of his legacy, and I wanted to see them carried on, not just in Southend, but around the country.
“This will be an amazing event which will not only honour the memory of my late colleague, but also provide a great opportunity to bring older people in the community together to share stories and make friendships.
“Please do get in touch if you are, or know someone, 100 years old or older who would like to join us.”
