Tea and Cake with the Lord Lieutenant!

We were delighted to welcome HM Lord Lieutenant Helen Nellis to our wonderful heritage centre at Ridgmont Station on Monday (26 July).

Her Majesty’s Lieutenant is our Patron and had asked to come and say a personal “Thank you” to BedsRCC staff for the amazing work that they have all done throughout the pandemic, so we invited both the Lord Lieutenant and some of our staff team to join us for tea and cake.

It was also a chance for her to see the restoration work that has taken place at the heritage centre, making it a much more welcoming venue to visit.

Tracy Cowan, BedsRCC CEO said, “It was really lovely to see lots of our staff at the Station as many of them haven’t seen the brilliant changes that have happened at the Heritage Centre and it was a chance for those who hadn’t previously met the Lord Lieutenant to do so. The team haven’t really stopped during lock down, so it was really important for them to hear how valued they are.”

Here are some of the lovely photos from the day.
