CHILDREN from St Joseph’s  Primary School in Fishponds visited City Hall to learn more about how Bristol is governed.

The school council members were shown around the building and council chamber - where they particularly enjoyed sitting in the Lord Mayor’s chair - by Hillfields councillors Craig Cheney and Anna Keen.

They went on to meet the Mayor of Bristol Marvin Rees and asked him a series of questions (some quite tough!) about future plans for the the city.  

Councillor Keen said: “We were so pleased to meet the school councillors from St Joseph's School.  They are a fantastic group of children, really committed to their school and interested in how the council works and the job of the Mayor.  They asked brilliant questions and we feel the future is safe in their hands.”

Councillor Cheney added: “It was great to meet the children from St Joseph's - they came with practical ideas, great questions, an enthusiasm to improve their school for the children and adults, and ambitions to change the city in the same way as they get older. “
