THE Duke and Duchess of Cornwall are touring Cornwall this July, with Boscastle and Callington on the cards for a royal visit.
On Monday, July 15, the Duke and Duchess will go to Mevagissey, Boscastle and Par. As the second engagement of the trip, the Duke of Cornwall will attend a celebration to mark the 60th anniversary of Cornwall Area of Outstanding National Beauty (AONB) at Boscastle National Trust visitor centre.
On arrival, Prince Charles will first view a hedging demonstration as part of the Kerdroya project to construct a Cornish-hedged landscape labyrinth. The Duke will then proceed to Boscastle Harbour and the National Trust Visitor Centre to meet with AONB staff and guests. Following the reception, the Duke will undertake a brief tour of the local area to hear from those who were affected by flooding in the area 15 years ago and speak to community members involved in recovery efforts. Before departing, the Duke will unveil a new commemorative AONB way marker.
On Tuesday, July 16, the Duke and Duchess will begin the third part of their tour to Callington, Tavistock and Lostwithiel. Their first engagement of the day will be the attendance of a garden party to celebrate the 50th anniversary of Ginsters bakery in Callington.
In the garden of the Ginsters bakery and headquarters, their Royal Highnesses will attend an event to celebrate the company’s 50th birthday, with guests including employees, their families and local suppliers. The Duke and the Duchess will meet company apprentices and learn about Ginsters’ initiatives to promote sustainability, including recycled packaging and energy efficiency. They will also view an exhibition telling the story of the organisation’s heritage. Before departing, the Duke and the Duchess will cut a birthday cake to celebrate the occasion.
