On Tuesday, Alex Dumighan and his mum met Mrs.Watson at the Town Hall for a very important meeting with the Mayor of Worthing, Cllr. Sean McDonald.
Alex was there in his role as a Year 1 School Councillor to present a poppy wreath to the Mayor. Our poppy wreaths have been on display in the foyer of the Town Hall, alongside the Books of Remembrance, since 2014 when we first attended the 100 years commemoration of Armistice Day at the War Memorial.
Here you can see Alex presenting the wreath to the Mayor in The Mayor’s Parlour.
After the presentation, the Mayor kindly invited Alex, his mum and Mrs. Watson to have tea and chocolate biscuits with him!After Alex had drunk his tea and eaten most of the biscuits, the Mayor let him sit at his desk.
The poppy wreath is now in place in the foyer of the Town Hall, which is open for the public to see. If you are in Worthing during the holiday, why don’t you go to the Town Hall and see it for yourself? You never know, maybe you will bump into the Mayor while you are there!
