Weston's mayor paid a visit to Ashcombe Primary School to speak about a project its year four students had been working on and was quizzed by members of the Jill Dando newsroom.

Mayor James Clayton also shared a hot chocolate with four pupils from years five and six who had behaved particularly well that week.

Cllr Clayton discussed his role as mayor and which of these he most enjoyed.

A report by the school's reporters said: "Firstly, we asked him 'what are your main jobs as our mayor?'

"Some of his jobs include chairing council meetings, visiting different organisations, cutting ribbons to open businesses and signing cheques for companies.

"The question that followed this was 'what is your favourite of these jobs?' Mr Mayor said he loves talking to young children and meeting new people."

The mayor also revealed to Ashcombe pupils that his favourite colour was black - because it goes with everything.
