Mayor of Ferryhill, Councillor Carole Atkinson visited Ferryhill School on Friday to deliver medals to mark the Queen’s Platinum Jubilee.
Following a motion put forward by Councillor Dave Farry to a recent Council meeting, it was agreed by all members that Ferryhill Town Council provide each school child in Ferryhill with a jubilee themed gift to mark the Queen’s Platinum Jubilee, this motion was agreed by members and it was decided later that the most suitable gift would be a medal that could be kept for years to come.
The medals will be delivered to local primary schools this week when each child will be given a medal in a presentation box to keep as a gift from Ferryhill Town Council.
Mayor of Ferryhill, Councillor Carole Atkinson, said “this was a fantastic idea put forward to Council and all members agreed that the children should have something to keep to mark this memorable occasion. I was extremely happy to visit one of the Ferryhill Schools last week and met with some of the young people to show them the medals”
