Schoolchildren congratulate their teacher
Lessons at Bideford Church Infants’ School took an unusual turn last week when the Borough Beadle, Mr W Dennis, arrived at the school with the full regalia of the Mayor and Mayoress of the town.
Mrs E C Hart, a member of the staff of the school, is this year’s Mayoress of Bideford.
After the Borough Beadle had explained all the points of interest about the chains and badges, to the great delight of her children the Mayoress donned her chain of office and posed with other members of the staff and children for photographs.
Among the messages of congratulations to Mrs Hart was one from the school managers.
