Cheshire East Mayor Margaret Simon unveiled a school’s colourful new library and then gave youngsters a guided tour of Crewe’s Municipal Buildings.
The Mayor and Consort were guests of honour at the official opening of the Key Stage One library at Haslington Primary, which features brightly painted murals showing plants and garden creatures.
The Mayor also judged an art competition after pupils at the school in Crewe Road, Haslington, were asked to create pictures of their pets or creatures from their imagination.
After enjoying a school lunch with pupils, the Mayor and Consort met the 18 members of the school's Council back at the Municipal Buildings in Crewe, for a tour and refreshments.
Councillor Simon said: “The library looks lovely and is a really excellent resource for the youngsters. Thanks must go to the talented school staff involved in creating and painting the mural and in making the library a colourful place, where the pupils will love to spend some time.
“Members of the School Council enjoyed their visit to the Municipal Buildings, especially when they held their own meeting in the council chamber. It is good to be able to show children a part of their local heritage.”
The 280-pupil school held a non-uniform day during the VIP visit, which helped raise hundreds of pounds for the Mayor’s Charity – Action Duchenne, which helps sufferers of muscular dystrophy, and Hearing Dogs for Deaf People.
