A GROUP of Yate residents recently were invited on a special trip to Westminster for a fully guided tour of parliament along with their MP. 

Residents were treated to an insightful tour around the renowned and historic buildings, led by the parliament tour guides.

MP Luke Hall then spoke to residents about the ongoing work being done to deliver for his constituents, followed by a Q&A session where residents raised various topics including the introduction of half hourly train services from Yate to Bristol, with some residents expressing how invaluable this service has been.
