Charles and Camilla come to town
Congleton welcomed royal visitors this week, when Prince Charles and Camilla came to town to see a successful community project in action.
The Prince of Wales and the Duchess of Cornwall visited the Old Sawmill on Back River Street and chatted with the team. Two of the volunteers on the day were from Rossendale Trust’s ‘WorkTaste’ scheme, and they met the Royals and had the chance to speak with them about their involvement with the cafe.
Eleanor Dobson and Gareth Clifford have enjoyed everything about the Sawmill, learning new skills and being part of the team.
Eleanor said, “It was perfect! I was very nervous to begin with. Charles walked in and asked us what we did? I was shy, but told him all about WorkTaste and my work at the café. Camilla was very nice too and thanked me for all my hard work. It felt good, and it was so exciting!”
