A date with Her Majesty the Queen was enjoyed by Clitheroe Ramblers veteran Pat Parrott and her companion, Val Grooby.

It was a memorable day for Pat who was invited to rub shoulders with royalty at Buckingham Palace’s garden party in recognition of her services to the community, 50 years of work in the protection of footpaths and provision of access in the Ribble Valley countryside.

Travelling down to London by first class train, in all their finery, Pat and Val, who is an active and supportive footpath worker, arrived at Green Park Tube Station in view of the palace, with guests already arriving and queuing up all along Constitution Hill.
