Her Majesty drops in to the Village Centre

We have been honoured and absolutely delighted that Her Majesty the Queen made a private visit to Dersingham Village Centre on Friday 5th July, welcomed by flag-waving children from Dersingham Primary School. After being greeted by Sue Payne, a Centre Trustee and former Parish Council Chairman, and Coral Shepherd, current Chairman of the Parish Council, Her Majesty was shown around the Centre by Sue. Then David Collingham, Chairman of the Dersingham Village Centre Association, introduced the Queen to representatives of groups who use the Centre and who described the wide range of activities that take place. Finally, the Queen unveiled a plaque, behind which was a photograph of King George V who kindly donated the land for the original village hall back in 1911. On departure, Phoebe Ward presented the Queen with a posy.

Photographs of the occasion were taken by Jo Halpin Jones and you can see some of them here.
