Prince Charles to Visit Salisbury

15th June 2018

As part the recovery programme for Salisbury, The Prince of Wales and The Duchess of Cornwall will visit Salisbury on Friday 22nd June

After meeting with local businesses and people in the city centre, Prince Charles and Camilla will be attending a reception in the Guildhall to meet those who are playing an active role in the recovery programme following the incident on 4th March.

Robin McGowan, CEO of Salisbury BID, has been invited to the reception in recognition of BID’s involvement in the recovery.

Over 100 people will be attending the reception including civic dignitaries, emergency services, local and national agencies, business, marketing and events and arts and culture representatives.

We’re all invited to see their Royal Highnesses at Salisbury’s Market Place at 10:30am, when they will be meeting local people before of arriving at the reception at the Guildhall.

As our city returns to normal, this Royal visit marks a significant and positive step in Salisbury’s recovery programme.

Alistair Cunningham, chair of the recovery coordinating group, said: “We are absolutely delighted to welcome The Prince of Wales and The Duchess of Cornwall to Salisbury in support of its recovery and to help boost visitors to the centre. Whilst the recovery work is well underway, there is still a lot to be done and this visit is a real boost for the city.

Everyone here is so pleased that their Royal Highnesses have decided to visit and I am sure that local residents and visitors will join us to welcome them to the city centre and to celebrate this special Royal visit.”
