HRH The Princess Royal visited NCI Newhaven lookout on Tuesday 15th September.
The Princess is Royal Patron of the NCI and visited Newhaven to help mark the 15th anniversary of the founding of the NCI station in Newhaven.
The visit had been postponed twice previously for reasons beyond the Princess’s control so her visit on a perfect sunny day was doubly welcome.
HRH met a number of the volunteer watchkeepers, received a tour of the lookout facilities and unveiled a commemorative plaque.
David Crozier, NCI Newhaven Station Manager, said, ‘The visit was thoroughly enjoyable and the perfect way to celebrate our anniversary. The occasion lost nothing by being slightly belated!’
