LIB Dem leader Nick Clegg chatted with pensioners during a visit to the borough yesterday.
Mr Clegg, pictured, joined Solihull MP Lorely Burt at a meeting with the Solihull Pensioners' Convention.
The two talked with members about a number of issues - with the credit crunch top of the agenda.Earlier in the day the MP for Sheffield Hallam met with A Level students at the Sixth Form College, Solihull - some of whom have parliamentary ambitions themselves.
Two of them have already had a taste of political life. Jessica Bantock was a media representative for the UK Youth Parliament last year and worked with fellow politics student and current chairman of the Student Council, John English, at the House of Lords.
During his visit to Solihull, Mr Clegg also visited the Land Rover plant.
