School Parliament's tour of the Council Offices

On Thursday 14th November the School Parliament were given the special honour of a tour of the Council Offices by Mayor Riley himself. We got to sit in the Council chamber and use their special microphones to ask him questions about his duties and his interests. He told us that his chain is very heavy and uncomfortable! We saw the Mayor’s Parlour and the council Bunker which was used during WW2 and is still set up ready to use in case of a disaster. We had a brilliant morning and have picked up lots of tips from the Mayor and his Deputy which will help us in our Parliament role at school this year.
