The Beacon had a very special Royal visitor on Wednesday - HRH Countess of Wessex came for the Civic Reception at The Beacon Centre. Today's event has been a year in the planning and it was great. HRH was lovely - engaging, chatty and particularly good with the young mums and little children from SMARTIES. In fact, she was not the only dignitary present - there were several others including the Mayor of Surrey Heath, the High Sheriff of Surrey, leader of Surrey County Council, Surrey Heath Councillors and Surrey County representatives - to name a few.
The guests were served a delicious lunch and were given an insight into the life of the Beacon Church. Our own photographer, Andy Teo, was on hand to record the occasion. Photos are available to view on The Beacon website or Facebook. Camberley News and Mail were also present and the Sunday Express who followed Sophie for the day (that edition will be available on 27th November).
Jem and The Beacon team were magnificent. To view photos of the day:
