Alfie Turton, aged 9 from Woodfield Primary School answered the call and is in post!
Alfie’s written application was shortlisted down to the final 10, at which point applicants were asked to send in a short video of themselves explaning why they would like to be Junior Civic Mayor and why they felt that they would be good at it.
The successful applicant was decided by Civic Mayor Linda Curran and Cabinet Member for children, Young People and Schools Nuala Fennelly.
