Stockwell Centre Visited by HRH The Duchess of Cornwall
We were very excited to receive Her Royal Highness Camilla, The Duchess of Cornwall, when she paid a visit to the Stockwell Centre on 7 February 2019.
The Duchess visited the Centre as part of an event celebrating the work of the Lambeth GP Food Co-Op, a local initiative run by doctors, patients, and local people to build community gardens in GP surgeries. This enables local people to grow food in shared, public spaces, which helps them to live sustainable lives as well as socialising with others, which contributes to their overall health and wellbeing. The project is funded through the Solutions for an Ageing Society (SAS) programme, which was been developed by Hyde Housing in partnership with UnLtd.
During the visit, which was also attended by Mayor of Lambeth Christopher Wellbelove and Morley Principal Andrew Gower, the Duchess met with local people, visited the various community gardens, and watched a Reflexology demonstration by Julie Quinn, our Programme Manager for Complementary Health.
Speaking about the visit, Andrew Gower said, "Morley College London was delighted to welcome the Duchess of Cornwall to our Stockwell Centre site. It was a brilliant opportunity to draw attention to the importance of community education and its impact on health and wellbeing."
