The Mayor of Waltham Forest Cllr Elizabeth Baptiste hosted the School Council from Chingford Church of England Primary School at the Town Hall, and accepted an invitation to see the mace made by pupils at the request of the late Mayor Cllr Chris Robbins, so it can be used at school council meetings. 

Tia, a school council member, was inspired by the Mayor’s talk about supporting sickle cell and arranged a charity pyjama day at the school to coincide with the Mayor’s visit, with more than £500 being raised.
