A LUCKY young boy from Weston got to live out his ideal day as town mayor with a little help from the Weston & Somerset Mercury.Mitchell Hammond, aged 10, had breakfast on the Grand Pier with co-owner Rod Brenner and Weston's mayor Charles Heard before taking a trip to North Somerset Museum.The special day was organised after Mitchell entered the Mayor's Literary Competition. Schoolchildren were asked to write about what they would do if they were mayor for the day.Mitchell's dream day came true on Tuesday.He was picked up by a chauffeur driven car with his parents and big sister and taken to the pier where he ate warm croissants and strawberry jam with Mr Brenner. He then took a spin on the dodgems with the mayor and was given a behind the scenes tour of the pier.The youngster, a regular visitor to the museum, then gave the mayor a tour of all the exhibits instead of the manager.Mitchell said: "It was really good because I got to give the mayor lots of fun, he laughed the whole time."It was great to have such an interesting breakfast because ones at home are not very interesting."His mum Jackie said: "He had an absolutely fabulous time and was beaming the entire time."He reads the paper every week to see what the mayor has been up to and is quite taken with the idea of becoming mayor when he grows up."Look in future editions to see who else gets their wish come true thanks to some Jim'll Fix It style help from the Weston & Somerset Mercury.
