HRH Prince of Wales visits Bromley-by-Bow
Posted at 12:42pm 8th May, 2012
Andrew was delighted to co-host a visit for the Prince to the Bromley-by-Bow Centre with CEO Rob Trimble.
The photo shows Andrew and the Prince planting a beautiful cornus tree in memory of Vanessa Barker, the founder of Pollen which provides invaluable support to people with a range of mental health conditions, who sadly died just before Christmas.
This is the Prince’s third visit to the Centre; the last time being almost exactly ten years ago to the day. This was the first major Royal visit to a project in an Olympic borough in 2012.
Debating the contribution to our well-being of sport, recreation and the arts in our lives Andrew reflects on one of east London's renowned artists, Frank Creber. Describing his style, Andrew noted that Frank's paintings "rather brilliantly capture the engagement in east London and the creative interchange between people and place."
