The Princess Royal has visited Cromer to celebrate the 30th anniversary of the National Coastwatch Institution (NCI). She is the royal patron of the charity.

Princess Anne visited the Cromer station and met with the Lord-Lieutenant of Norfolk, The Lady Dannatt and volunteers. She was shown around by Richard Leeds, the station manager, and later attended a reception at The Cliftonville Hotel, where she met with volunteers from across East Anglia.
Stephen Hand, chairman of the NCI, said: “What a wonderful start to the year in which we will celebrate our 30th anniversary of helping to keep people safe on the coast and save lives at sea by maintaining a daily visual and radio watch. It’s a huge source of pride that HRH The Princess Royal is our patron and that she takes such an active interest in our work. Her visits are always a great boost for our volunteers and all our friends and supporters in the local communities.”

Richard Leeds added, “It’s a real privilege and pleasure to welcome The Princess Royal to the town.”

A plaque was unveiled to commemorate her visit.
