Prince Charles visited Pebble Mill at some point in the mid 1980s. Here are a couple of memories from staff who remember the visit.
Tracy Crump, ‘I remember Charles coming. I worked in the kitchens. Eileen Bywater was my boss. I remember having to make chilled watercress soup.’
Marie Phillips, ‘I remember Prince Charles coming to Pebble Mill. Staff were gathered in the Foyer and a voice piped up – “Did yer use yer soap Sir?” A startled Prince said “Er, yes I did”. “Oh good, cos I’ve got it” replied Joycie Kite, who many will remember as a real character among Pebble Mill’s own Band of Cleaners before Contractors came in.’
