Community Week: The Mayor of Wetherby

Tuesday 01 November 2022

To kick start our community themed week, we welcomed the Mayor of Wetherby into school. Councillor Neil O’Byrne was elected as Mayor and he’s is in his third term of office.

The children listened to the Mayor as he explained his role in the community. Following this, the classes were able to ask questions.

Do you get paid?

Who voted for you and was it fair?

Do the people of Wetherby vote?

Why do you wear the chains around your neck?

Have you made a difference to the people and town of Wetherby?

Was there an election?

Don’t forget, the Mayor will be lighting the Wetherby bonfire on Saturday!
