Alfriston School welcomed Wealden District Council vice-chairman Angela Snell back to the classroom recently.

The vice-chairman spoke to children and staff about the work of the council within the district and their communities and during an assembly at the community primary school, Years 3 and 4 students actively engaged in questions about being a councillor and what it entails.

The schoolchildren told the vice-chairman how they were already involved in local litter picks organised by the council.

After the visit, Councillor Snell said, “It was a real pleasure to visit such a warm and welcoming school. The students were engaged and incredibly responsive during the discussion. I would like to thank Alfriston School for inviting me to lead their assembly.”
