Last night the 2nd Raunds Cubs visited Raunds Town Hall for part of their local Knowledge badge. They were greeted by Cllr Sylvia Hughes, Mayor of Raunds for an evening of activities and learning about the Town Council.
The children were split in to two groups, each group visited the council chamber where the Mayor explained the tiers of local government and what the Town Council are responsible for. The children enjoyed trying on the Mayor and Consort’s chains and carried out their own Council meeting in the council chamber.
Cllr Sylvia Hughes Mayor of Raunds said,
Both groups of children also visited Saxon Hall and completed an activity sheet. One of the tasks was to design a Mayor’s chain of office.
Anais and Christopher won a prize for their winning designs and all the cubs received sweets for taking part.
