Meeting the Mayor of Liverpool
On Tuesday 23rd March Merchant Taylors’ Junior Boys had an important meeting…….we were going to meet the Mayor of Liverpool at Liverpool Town Hall as we were involved in a project called ‘Wrapping Liverpool in Love.’ We created a message on a postcard and wrote a caring message with a drawing on it. The project was a success as it reached the papers in America! The Mayor of Liverpool wanted to meet us to find out more about the work we had done for the project and to provide us of a tour of Liverpool Town Hall. The mayor was a lovely man and made us feel so welcome. Firstly, we had water or juice and a biscuit. Whilst we had that we were looking around the East Reception. It had many paintings and overall looked VERY impressive. We met the Lord Mayor and the Mayor of Sefton. They both had very big gold necklaces that showed they were Lord Mayor or Mayor. They looked very expensive and were made for the Mayor and Lord Mayor. The first room we viewed was the Hall and they told us all about the history of the dome at the top of Liverpool Town Hall. The next room was the dining room which had a huge chandelier. We went straight to the next room. The room was full of huge chandeliers and was a ballroom. And we were told stories about the place such as there is a ghost haunting the Town Hall. The ghost is a lady who married the Lord Mayor and then died in the Town Hall and it is said that she is roaming around the Town Hall to this day! There has been some people sighting of a ghost in a long white dress. We entered a new room with lots of microphones, This was a court and planning meetings take place. We had our picture taken in the Lord Mayor’s chair. We then looked at the list of all previous Lord Mayors. We then visited the Remembrance Room were we looked at the different names of the people who fought in WW1 then it was time to go but it was an amazing time and worth every minute!

Merchant Taylors’ Boys’ Junior School have been involved in a project to raise awareness of homeless people; in particular those in Liverpool. The project took place on Valentine’s Day whereby knitted scarves were placed around trees and lampposts for homeless people to take (or anyone in need). A tag was attached to each scarf with a message/picture from the boys at our school to brighten someone’s life and show them that we care.
Today representatives from Merchant Taylors’ Boys’ Junior School went to meet the Mayor of Liverpool at Liverpool Town Hall. The Mayor had invited us as he had read about our project in the local paper as well as reading about it on the internet as our story had gone Global! He was interested to find out more about the project.
I thoroughly enjoyed the trip because I learnt a lot about the history of Liverpool Town Hall and when it was built in 1749! We were given a tour of the Town Hall and found out many fascinating facts!
