It was all smiles and sandwiches last week when one of our Prince’s Countryside Fund funded centres attended HRH Prince Charles’ 70th Birthday Garden Party at Buckingham Palace.
Tanya Cook and learner Hilda from A1 Community Works were invited by the Prince’s Countryside Fund to attend the prestigious event as a thank you for all of their hard work on the project.
A1 Community Works, alongside other centres Destinations@Saltburn and Lincs Training, have just finished delivering the two-year programme, which has seen them support small business owners and individuals in rural areas to overcome challenges and develop digital skills to benefits themselves and their work.
Tanya told us: “Hilda and I had a fabulous time. We arrived in London and went to the Prince's Countryside Fund reception before the party itself. There was sparkling wine. elderflower cordial and canapes. Everyone was very friendly. We then all walked to the palace.
