Schoolchildren from Wembley helped officially welcome new residents into the borough at Brent Town Hall yesterday.

Pupils from Chalkhill Primary School attended the citizenship certificate award ceremony at the Town Hall in Forty Lane.

The children aged between five and 11 were all members of the school council and also met with Mayor of Brent, Cllr Michael Adeyeye during the ceremony.

Cllr Adeyeye showed children the register of deaths births and weddings

Nancy Olie, who accompanied the children on the visit said the children greatly enjoyed the experience.

She said: “Our school is a multicultural school.

“Seeing the people of their own nationality getting the citizens certificate made the children excited.”

Citizenship ceremonies are held to welcome new British citizens over the age of 18 into their local community.

A civic dignitary gives the new citizens the history of the Borough and welcomes new citizens.

As part of the ceremony the new citizen has to swear or affirm an oath of allegiance to the Queen.
