Royally United

03 May 2011

Friday's Royal Wedding was a timely reminder of why the UK maintains a certain status around the world which, some would say, belies its current economic status.

Though the pomp and ceremony of the occasion harked back to great State events of the past there was something very modern about the marriage of two obviously very happy, young people. The British people always seem to show their true commitment and enthusiasm to the country on such occasions. We can only hope that it will linger in the memory and encourage people to believe in the country again. It is confidence such as that which will see us improve our prospects for the future.

It was a very active time at all our Audley villages. Our residents more than most recollect such great events of the past and their significance to the nation.
