Pupils from the school council at St Augustine’s Primary School in Worksop went on an annual visit to London, organised by local MP John Mann.

The children were accompanied by head teacher Mrs Jackie Ryan, chairman of Governors Coun Glynn Gilfoyle, teacher Laura Gee and teaching assistant Lisa Slaney.

The pupils started their day with a tour of Parliament and stood in the House of Lords, the House of Commons and the Great Hall where many influential and powerful people have stood before them.

“They decided that the gold and red leather in the House of Lords was much nicer than the House of Commons,” said Mrs Gee.

The children walked down to Downing Street and were able to stand outside Number 10.

Later in the day they went on the London Eye and took a visit to the National Gallery.

“All in all it was a great day filled with memories that will last life time,” added Mrs Gee.
