The Nursery children were delighted to meet the Lord Mayor of Portsmouth Steven Wylie this week.

The children were all hugely excited about the visit and were able to try on his ceremonial hat and look at the intricate gold braiding on his ceremonial gown.  The Lord Mayor showed them the names of all the previous Lord Mayors engraved on the back of the chain of office as well as the star and moon on the coat of arms.  Everyone even had the opportunity to become Lord Mayor for a few moments when they tried on the chain of office.  

“I liked the red cloak best,” said Sophia Bedi.  Whilst Bella Dimond and Haylen Scott agreed they “liked going in the Lord Mayors room.”

Thank you so much to everyone in the Lord Mayor’s Office for helping to organise the visit, the children had the most amazing time.
