Mixing with Royalty

At long last the Heritage Centre received its invitation to attend Buckingham Palace and formally recognise its achievement as a Queen's Award for Voluntary Service winner. We sent Christine and John Pearce, two of our volunteers along to represent us.

Christine and John thoroughly enjoyed their day and sampled the afternoon tea prepared by the Royal kitchen ... the verdict?  The Victoria Sponge was nice, but not as nice as Cheri's in the Tea Room!  Here are some wonderful images from this special day.
