been getting a taste of civic life when they where officially sworn in as Junior
and Young Lord Mayors. The latest group are made up of 22 young people from
primary, secondary and special schools in the City.

Lord Mayor, Councillor Roz Gladden, at suitable events such as Remembrance
Sunday, Civic Service, Freedom of the City celebrations through pensioners'
parties and school assemblies.
It is the 7th time the scheme has been run, and all of the candidates had to
give a speech explaining how they would promote the positive profile of the City
of Liverpool and that of children and young people within the City
Lord Mayor, Councillor Roz Gladden, said:- "This is a great opportunity
for our young people to become involved in civic events, find out what is
happening in their City and see how democracy works. I'm delighted that so
many of our young people have shown an interest in civic life and will be more
than happy to have them assisting me at events during my next few months as Lord
Mayor. I am sure they will do a great job representing the young people of
Liverpool over the coming year."
