Mayor 5New Mayor Visits Rossett

On Wednesday a group of  our Year 8 students had the opportunity to meet the new Mayor of Harrogate - Councillor Stuart Martin.  During the visit, just two days after  he officially took office, the Mayor and his wife April enjoyed a tour of the school before taking part in a Q&A session with the students.  Aside from climate change and the proposed Nidd Gorge bypass, questions from our students also covered what the council are doing in response to local demand for recycling and how local businesses are supported.  The students showed a great interest in the work of the Harrogate Mayor and the other councillors in the district and were invited by the Mayor to visit the Council Chambers to find out more.
