Pilkington: Royal landing

The Princess Royal paid a flying visit to Lathom en route for a series of appointments in Lancashire in March. The Princess's office had asked Pilkington if they could use Lathom's lawns as a helicopter landing pad.

The Royal flight touched down at 10.30am and the Princess was welcomed by Group Vice-president Technology Don Wilkinson before being whisked off to her first engagement.

Don said later: "It was very nice to meet and greet the princess on what must have been one of the shortest royal visits we've ever had to Lathom."
