As well as opening the new building in front of a large audience of invited visitors, the princess spent several hours at the centre, touring the site, finding out about all the exciting things we do here at CTE, and meeting both staff and guests.

Lady Acland, Chair of Trustees for Calvert Trust Exmoor, gave a short speech, welcoming Her Royal Highness, the Lord Lieutenant, High Sheriff and all the invited guests, and thanked all those present for their help in supporting the vision, that has come to fruition in the splendid new building we now have.
