The Royal Visit

On Tuesday at 11am, Miss Couch and Mrs Knox took the School Council to Quick’s farm, to see Prince Edward and the Duchess of Essex. We were very excited that we were going to meet members of the Royal family.

When we got there the first thing I could see were a few security guards.

We slowly walked up to Quick’s café /farm to look around the new kitchen. When we got into the new kitchen we sat down on the chairs that they had made and we were given drinks and a cake and then we read our books.

After an hour we all had to stand next to each other ready to meet them. Grace presented the Duchess with a posy. They spoke to every person that was there including the builders who built the kitchen and John and Mary Quicke.

The Duchess of Essex asked all of us which year we were in. It was an honour to be there and welcome them to the new farm kitchen.
