Democracy Week

In the morning visited St. Mary Michaels and Community Primary Schools where I me with the school councils. Explained a little about the role of the mayors and the council. Then answered questions from the pupils – some personal, some general  and some very searching.

In the afternoon teamed up with the clerk who talked about her role and gave more details on how the Town Council operates. For this session we were joined by the  St. Thomas primary school. Again this tuned into a Q&A session. Whilst refreshments were served the children had an opportunity to sit in the mayors chair and have photos taken wearing the mayors chain.

It is quite an intensive day but very enjoyable and the children were great – a credit to Garstang
