Mayor day at school

CIVIC pride was the order of the day when the former Deputy Mayor of Kirklees visited school pupils.

Christine Iredale went to Leeside School to speak to pupils about her role.

Zoe Whitworth, headteacher of the Heckmondwike school, said: “The children found out about what the deputy mayor does and about the clothes mayors wear, and the mace.

“One child from each class to dress up as a mayor which was really nice.”
