The captains were also were given a tour of Worksop Town Hall and invited to see areas not open to the public, including the Chairman’s room.

Speaking about the artwork Cllr Merryweather said: “One of the best things about being Chair of the Council is the opportunity to meet the fantastically talented young people we have in Bassetlaw. The primary school pupils of today are the leaders of the future, and I was really impressed with the artwork that the Worksop Priory pupils have created. It was lovely that they see togetherness as a key part of our British values and I think that is something we can all learn from.”
