The day began with the robing of the junior mayor and a tour of the mayor’s parlour and council chamber.

The three pupils and councillor Budge then went to visit Chichester Fire Station, followed by a St George’s Day service for the Royal Sussex Regimental Association at Chichester Cathedral.

Mayor Peter Budge said: “It was another successful mayor making, the children loved the fire station and the planetarium was a hit.

“Molly was a delight and asked lots of question and gave a brilliant speech of thanks at the end of the day.”
