Prince Charles and the Duchess of Cornwall paid a visit to Barnstaple last month. Hundreds of well wishers turned out to greet the Duke and Duchess  as they toured the historic Pannier Market. Hannah Harrington, our town centre manager showed them round the market introducing them to stallholderson the way.

Local singer / songwriter Yazzy then led a choir of schoolchildren in a rendition of 'Happy Birthday' for the Duchess who celebrated her 70th birthday at the beginning of the week. She was also presented with a cake by local firm Mrs Smudgers kitchen and flowers from Bloomers florist.

Watch a short video of the visit here.
