HEREFORDSHIRE has had another visit from a senior member of the Royal Family.

Princess Anne was at the charity YSS today to be updated on its work in the community.

Just three days ago her brother, Prince Charles, delighted crowds when he called into Ross-on-Wye, and later met staff at Madley technology company ETL Systems.

The Princess Royal attended an event hosted by charity YSS today (November 8), at Hereford Football Club.

The Princess Royal, who has been patron of the YSS since 2008, met with staff, volunteers, dignitaries and service users, and was updated about the charity’s work in the community, with a particular focus on Herefordshire.

The event, Working Together in Herefordshire Now and in the Future, was held at Hereford Football Club and brought together organisations working in the county to find common links and ways of working collaboratively to solve issues and challenges in the community.

Princess Anne joined a round-table discussion with community and charity leaders and YSS trustees.

She was then introduced to staff and guests during a ‘community emporium’ showcasing YSS and its partners’ work in Herefordshire and beyond.

Catherine Kevis, YSS chief executive said, “We are delighted and honoured that our wonderful patron, the Princess Royal was able to join us and provide important support for our work.
