Junior Mayor visits Chichester Cathedral...

Junior Mayor for the Day
Junior Mayor for the Day

On Monday 24th April we were very honoured to receive a visit from the Junior Mayor for the day, Molly Howick, and her two Junior Councillors for the day, Ethan Karr and Daniel Ambler.  The three are all pupils from Central Church of England Junior School in Chichester.  They were accompanied by Mayor of Chichester himself, Councillor Peter Budge, and school representative, Janette McAlpine.

The three children had a packed day of activities organised for them.  Their day began at 8.50am when they were picked up from Central School in a mini-bus driven by Tim Smith, City Council Casual Facilities Officer, and taken to the Council House for robing and a tour of the Mayor's Parlour and the Council Chamber. As you can see from the photograph, Molly looked resplendent in her red fur trimmed robe.  The excited party were then taken to Chichester Fire Station to meet some of the staff and to be taken on a tour. After a quick stop for refreshments back at the Mayor's Parlour, Molly, Ethan and Daniel joined members of the Royal Sussex Regimental Association in the Cathedral for their St George's Day Service.  

The Mayoral party ate a delicious lunch in the Cloisters CafĂ© which gave them all energy for their 'Ugly Mugs' Workshop in the afternoon. Vicky Rowlands, Partnerships Co-ordinator for the Cathedral's Learning and Engagement Department, showed them around the Cathedral looking at all the old and contemporary gargoyles, before taking them back to the Piper Room where they made some funny faces of their own out of clay.  As you can see from the photograph, they were all very pleased with the results!

The next stop was the South Downs Planetarium and Science Centre in Chichester where they looked at displays and presentations that introduced them to the awe and wonder of the universe. And finally Molly, Ethan and Daniel were returned to their school for one last duty - to plant a tree in the school grounds.
