We were delighted to welcome HRH Princess Anne to the mill in June. Her Royal Highness arrived on 15th June with a party of VIPS and was shown around the mill. The tour included every aspect of production and inspection of a special woven edge fabric in honour of her visit.
Her Royal Highness engaged enthusiastically with everyone in the workforce and was keen to understand the production process. As well as the intricacies of weaving, perching and mending she spent time looking at a number of uniforms of the Royal Household and the World Cup 2018 England suit which are made from Alfred Brown fabric.
Her warmth and eagerness to get to know the business and its people was very apparent. The tour concluded with the unveiling of a plaque in commemoration of this very special mill visit.
