A ST Neots vicar is to meet Prince Charles as a reward for her efforts to raise more than £600,000 to restore three churches.
Tomorrow (Thursday), the Rev Annette Reed, Vicar of the Paxtons with Diddington, will visit Clarence House with a few selected friends of Historic Churches.
Annette told The Hunts Post she was very much looking forward to meeting Prince Charles: "I was surprised and delighted to be invited. I would love to chat with him about organic gardening, but I don't expect I'll have the opportunity. I have a feeling that he is very interested in the work of restoring our precious architectural heritage and I feel privileged to have been chosen to attend this reception."
The event, which is being hosted by Prince Charles, has been organised as a thank you to members of the Historic Churches Preservation Trust, which is based in London and has branches across the UK.
