School Council visit the Mayor

After writing a letter to our MP, Liz Twist, the School Council were invited to visit the Mayor in her parlour.   The children met the macebearer, Nigel Hall,who explained about the history and symbolism of the mace. It is the symbol of authority and democracy and must be in place at all council meetings.  He also explained about the features of the Civic Regalia worn by the Mayor.  After this, the children asked lots of questions which they had prepared for their visit. They were then shown around the Council Chamber where the meetings take place. All the children enjoyed their visit and were made very welcome by the Mayor and Macebearer.

  1. This was a great trip and thank you to Mrs. Wilders and Liz Twist for organising it.
    The fact that we got to talk to the Mayor and Mace-bearer made the visit more interesting and we learnt a lot.
