SCHOOL pupils enjoyed an informative and exciting visit to one of Morpeth’s iconic buildings.

The town’s Deputy Mayor, Nic Best, took a group of children from Chantry Middle School and Technology College on a tour of Morpeth Town Hall and they saw some of the artefacts the town council looks after, including the silver mace from 1604.

He also did a Q&A session in the council chamber where they learned about the role of a councillor in the community and the authority’s responsibilities, such as litter bins and play areas. The pupils then occupied the seats usually sat in by councillors as they held a meeting of the School Council.
