Last week Prince Benjamin I. used his time in charge of the town hall to pay the town council a visit and address the councillors at the start of their meeting.

He commented on the fact that, due to cuts, they only have water to drink during the meetings and this stopped them being a merry bunch.  He also suggested charging an entrance fee to the meetings to help raise funds.

Having taken over the town hall on Saturday, Prince Benjamin I. has taken a “hands-on” approach.

Not only did he take a tour of the departments on Monday morning, he sat in on a press conference and announced his intention to take over the council meeting on Wednesday evening.

In the photo he is seen in one of the offices getting to grips with the telephone system, wtih Mayor Hans-Georg Brum (left), treasurer Thorsten Schorr (right), his Lord Steward Harald Pratt and pages Nadine and Nathalie.

It’s carnival time!
