Eccles Chairman Spends Afternoon at Buckingham Palace Garden Party

Following on from Prince Harry’s visit to the club last year to promote the All Schools Programme, Eccles Chairman Andy brunt, received an invitation for himself and a guest to the Palace Garden Party from The Lord lieutenant of Manchester. He says he thought of taking Mark Dutton but that it might be a step too far for His wife Gill, who he said scrubbed up very well for the do.

With our DofE people visiting St. James’s Palace to meet Prince Philip we’re becoming regulars at royal events.

Andy said “I am very, very conscious I am there on behalf of and representing all the people who have made Eccles RFC the community club it is today”.
