Barrington Pottery Meets HRH Prince Charles

It's not every day you get to meet Prince Charles
and it's not every day you get to see me 
wearing a Tie.
But we had time for a Quick Selfie.

 HRH was in Glastonbury Abbey to help promote Tourism in the area
following the flooding earlier in the year.
We got to present him with one of our water jugs
appropriate I thought!
He asked us how business was and he asked Marion
if she potted as well.
When we told him it was just us two in the pottery he said
"Sorry if I'm stopping production, You can blame Me"
Marion took all the pictures except this one of course
but I told the Prince My Mum will be so proud
to see a photo of me with Him!
It was a great thrill for us and a real boost
We also got to chat to lots of interesting people and we were
treated to a very nice Buffet lunch afterwards
with Local wine & Apple juice
and Strawberries and Cream for dessert.
All in all it was a very British affair.

I recently reached the point with our last order when all I could do was wait for the kiln to cool down. Which gave me the chance to cl...
