Children from four schools across the Daventry district had the chance to see politics in action.

As part of Local Democracy Week, the youngsters have enjoyed a visit to Daventry District Council’s (DDC) offices.

Yesterday (Wednesday) youngsters from Falconer’s Hill Junior School and West Haddon Primary School visited the council chamber and learned all about environmental health.

Today (Thursday), pupils from the primary schools in both Braunston and Crick visited to learn about the environment and climate change.

The sessions were attended by Cllr Chris Long, the current chairman of the council, alongside Cllr Alan Hills.

The latter, who is the council’s community, culture and leisure portfolio holder said: “Once again the sessions proved to be a big hit among the school children, and gave them an opportunity to find out more about how democracy works in local councils and also how their environment is managed.”
