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.
Advocating that we "think more outside the box" as we prepare to exit the European Union, Andrew said: " Brexit is a real opportunity for new thinking about the opportunities now presenting themselves in a digitised world that exists outside traditional silos. To grasp it, we all need a real change of mindset, both in Europe and in this country".
