The Duke of Edinburgh had a busy day in Cornwall. His Royal Highness first met with children, young people and families at Trelya, a charity dedicated to providing positive interventions into the lives of those with significant challenges to overcome.
Instead of supporting families for set periods of time, Treyla supports them for as long as they need as together they address multiple issues, from substance dependency to parenting to housing to employment to exploring Cornwall and beyond.
Celebrating the very best of local Cornish culture, The Duke, as Patron of Hall for Cornwall, later toured the new playhouse auditorium. His Royal Highness spoke with staff and enjoyed a specially-commissioned performance by young people.
Finally, at Healeys Cornish Cyder Farm, The Duke unveiled a plaque to officially open Kay’s Cyderhouse. Since the planting of their first trees in 1986, Healeys has grown to become the largest independent cyder-maker in Cornwall and the first distillery for 300 years.
His Royal Highness toured the new facility, meeting members of staff and having the opportunity to learn about the production of their products.
