POLITICALLY-MINDED pupils got the exciting chance to meet Chesterfield’s Mayor and Mayoress during a fact-finding visit.

Youngsters from Cavendish Junior School in Chesterfield toured the Mayor’s Parlour at the town hall last week.

The town’s Mayor and Mayoress, Peter and Jean Barr, met the pupils – who are members of the school’s Parliament – and spoke about the history of the impressive parlour and Chesterfield.

Rachel Laben, senior teacher and school parliament co-ordinator, said: “The pupils loved it – they said it was fascinating.

“They learned lots of history and found out more about the roles and responsibilities of the Mayor and Mayoress.”
