On Thursday 18 October we visited the Civic Centre we went to have question time with Councillor Mary Curtin who is the Mayor of Merton for 2018-2019. Mayor Curtin gave the children insight into the different roles the Mayor has and what it is like to be a Councillor.
After visiting the Mayor’s parlour, we were taken on a guided tour to the top of the Civic building where we could see the centre of London and how green Merton is. We were taken to the council chamber where Councillors discuss and vote on current agendas. We were shown how meetings take place and who attends them.
