HRH The Duke of Kent visited Holt Hall to find out about its work and tour the grounds.
He was met by the Vice Lord-Lieutenant of Norfolk, Lady Romney and Norfolk Constabulary Chief Superintendent Nick Davison.
At the centre, which is run by Norfolk County Council-owned Educator Solutions, His Royal Highness met chairman of Norfolk County Council David Collis, chairman of North Norfolk District Council, John Lee, and Holt Hall staff members.
During his visit, His Royal Highness toured Holt Hall grounds and historic hall, including the woodlands, Victorian walled garden and rear lawns, meeting staff members and centre visitors, including children and teachers from Holt Primary and Wensum Junior.
Speaking about the visit, Mike Roper, who is head of outdoor centres for Educator Solutions, said he and his team had been very much looking forward to the visit. He said: “I am absolutely thrilled that The Duke is visiting us. It is a great honour for Holt Hall and my team are very excited. We are all getting ready to welcome him to this beautiful hall and grounds which is visited by many children from across Norfolk and the UK each year.”
Holt Hall is set in 75 acres of ancient woodland, lawns, lakes and gardens close to the North Norfolk coast. It provides high quality residential and day visit experiences in North Norfolk for schools, colleges and universities from around the UK. Teaching and learning is aligned to the new curriculum (KS1 to A-Level), and aims to develop pupils’ knowledge, skills and confidence.
