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.
Over recent years the group has worked hard to restore and maintain hundreds of church buildings.
Annette is the former vicar of Sheepy, Leicestershire, where she spent nine years and helped to raise in excess of £600,000 for five churches in her care that needed major restoration.
