The Lake District Calvert Trust welcomes HRH Countess of Wessex to the centre

Her Royal Highness, Sophie the Countess of Wessex visited the Calvert Trust to carry out the official duty of opening the Centres’ brand new £3.7 million accommodation and state of the art Water Centre & Sensory Room.

The visitors in the centre this week,HighfieldSchool(West Yorkshire) andAshleySchool(Cheshire) were able to meet the Countess personally and even show her their newly acquired rock climbing skills.

Robin Burgess, Chairman of The Lake District Calvert Trust said:

 “Our residential visitors and local community are thrilled with our brand new high spec facilities. Throughout the day local groups, families & community members use the pool and on evenings our residential groups enjoy the hydrotherapy features of the pool and sauna, after a full day of outdoor activities.

“Our supporters have enabled not only a significant expansion to Calvert Trust but are improving the lives of our visitors. We are indebted to all who have contributed”

Once again the Lake District Calvert Trust would like to thank everybody who helped make the development possible and look forward to many more visitors using the new facilities in the future.
