Princess Anne gets royal welcome in Wisbech to see new Citizens Advice Bureau
Princess Anne has arrived in Wisbech today (Tuesday) to visit the recently opened new Citizens Advice Bureau offices at the Queen Mary Centre.
The Princess Royal, who is national Patron for the Citizens Advice Bureau, was greeted by a host of local dignitaries and political figures as she arrived for what was anticipated to be an hour long visit.
Among those in the line-up to meet the Princess was mayor of Wisbech Andrew Lynn who described the meeting as an honour and a great way to end his year as he hands over the chain of office at the town council mayor making on Friday.
He said: "We had a brief chat. I welcomed her to Wisbech and she asked me about my year in office, it was a brief conversation but it was a honour to meet her. She was looking well and seemed happy to be here."
Also present was Councillor Sam Clark, who is Fenland's portfolio holder for communities, who opened the CAB office earlier this year.
Keith Smith from the Ferry Project, which runs the Queen Mary Centre, was there to chat to Her Royal Highness about the work of the project.
While school children were also present at the centre in Somers Road and were giving the Princess a presentation.
The Princess Royal has previously visited the town to see the Octavia Hill Birthplace Museum when it's garden was officially opened.
