Duke of Gloucester to visit Warboys
A VILLAGE in Peterborough will enjoy a royal visit next month. On July 13, HRH The Duke of Gloucester will make the trip to Warboys, which was recently named Cambridgeshire Village of the Year in the national Calor Village of the Year competition. As part of his busy schedule, the Duke will meet some of the residents whose initiative has contributed to Warboys’ success and led to it being such an active community. Chairman of Warboys Parish Council, Councillor Stephen Kessel said: “We are delighted at the visit – this is a tribute to all the hard work by so many people from Warboys.” The occasion will be the village’s first royal visit since King George VI and Queen Elizabeth visited RAF Warboys in 1944.
