Model Answer:

Dear Mrs. Shelton,

I would like to invite our MP to join us for a local committee meeting for a session about green areas in our community.

First, let me introduce the ‘The Green Committee’. We are eight members; I am the organizer of this meeting. Our main aim is to make sure that the local area is full of plants and grasslands.

We are having a session about the adverse effects of less rainfall during this year. The primary purpose of the discussion is to brainstorm on different ways to water the green areas. We think the MP can provide valuable insights and make the session successful.

We will be glad and honored to have our MP participate in the committee meeting. We can arrange to have it at any time that is convenient to the MP.

In the meantime, please do let me know if you need any additional information.

I look forward to hearing from you soon.

Yours sincerely,

John Doe.
