A Chain for Youth

The Junior Chain is presented in Solihull

 As the outgoing Mayor and Mayoress of Solihull (Rotarians Ian & Sheila Courts, of the Meriden Club) prepared to hand back their chains of office, they decided to leave the borough a brand new piece of jewellery – a “Junior Mayoral Chain”.

The junior chain will be available for borough schools to use during their youth council meetings – it will be worn by the chair of the meeting – to help them learn about local democracy.

Youth Councils are a common feature of most schools now and the Mayor and Mayoress have even taken part in one school council meeting during their year in office. They have also been fascinated, and very impressed, by their many meetings with children and young people and the quality of debates that they have hosted in the Council Chamber, involving not just schools, but also scout groups and others.
