Year 1's trip to meet the Mayor of Walsall.

Year one went on a trip to meet the Mayor of Walsall, Marco Longhi.  We enjoyed having squash and biscuits with him.  We then interviewed him in the Mayor's Parlour.  We now know that he is 51 years old.  His inspiration to be mayor was from his granddad, who had also been a mayor before.  He has dress robes that he wears for special occasions.  We know that he his the head of the town and he looks after Walsall.
