An Incredible Prince Charming

It was another of Incredible’s touched by magic events. Rain and gale had been forecast, but the sun shone.
Todmorden Station was positively gleaming as The royal train running on biodiesel pulled into platform one. Everyone waiting for the first glimpse of HRH.

There he was, Mary greeted him and the day was off to a brilliant start

Into a car park crammed full of people where Mary managed to find a way through to the station growing beds, where The Prince met the the Incredible FJF team

and had a word or two with Ben

From the station Prince Charles went on to the market,
where Mary pinned an I love Tod badge to his jacket

and he had a word or two to say about a marrow

In the Market Hall he met stall holders among them
Jean Heartly of Crumbly Cheese

He sampled some of Carl’s Pexommier cheese

After some fun and games in the Theatre it was across the road to the Food for Life bus, for a cooking lesson, nice samosa Sir

At the Health Centre he meets staff

and strides forward to shake hands with Helena

who shares a joke with Nick and the Prince

from the Health Centre HRH goes onto the towpath

and walks along the canal stopping at the accidental garden nera the horse tunnel
where he chats to Linda and Estelle

and discusses the contents of the Incredible bag of veg

Before leaving us all with a final wave

Fare thee well Sir, come back any time for another
Right Royal Do
