The Sheriff of Chester has been enlightening children at St Mary’s Community Nursery School about his special role.
Cllr Alex Black and Sheriff’s Lady Janet Black told the youngsters at the Handbridge school about the city, his cloak and chain.
As part of their topic on pattern, each child designed a new cloak for him to make sure he always looks his best.
He was delighted by the colourful designs and the different patterns the children had used including zig-zags, spots, stripes and spiral.
Cllr Black is a regular visitor to St Mary’s, especially at Christmas when he wears another guise, dressed in an even more special red outfit.
