Royal visitors for Styal

The Prince of Wales and the Duchess of Cornwall are to visit Styal later this month.

As president of the National Trust, The Prince of Wales, will visit Quarry Bank Mill, Styal Primary School and Norcliffe Unitarian Chapel on Wednesday 24th January.

The Duchess of Cornwall, who is patron of The National Literacy Trust, will visit The Clink restaurant at HMP Styal where she will meet women who are receiving work-based training and education and hear more about the work that The Literacy Trust carries out at the prison.

After this the royals will head to Congleton where they will visit The Old Sawmill, a community hub run by a group of volunteers, where they will meet local groups who use the facilities – which include crafts and dance sessions.

They will also visit the Treo Memorial Statue, dedicated to the local army dog who was awarded the Dickin medal (the highest award any animal can receive whilst serving in military conflict).

Whilst in Congleton, they will also attend a reception for local charities and community representatives as part of a Town Hall celebration marking 700 years of the mayoralty of Congleton.
