Children from The Croft & Lethbridge Primary schools formed a greeting with waving flags, as Her Royal Highness arrived just before 12. The monarch then spent quite a considerable time meeting those who had turned out to see her before taking a tour of Deacon's store & workshop alongside Richard Deacon and local dignatories.
