| It was to be a great occasion at the Tenpasenta church estate on Saturday the 7th of June 2008, but it nearly never happened....
We invited Her Majesty (peanuts for teeth) The Queen Mother to officially open our newly built public facilities, unfortunately due to some misunderstanding or other she was unavailable, however, we were told that her daughter was happy to stand in as official engagements were heer thing, Princess Margaret wouldn't really have been our choice because of the recent clampdown on smoking in public places, but we were still happy that she could attend as she'd be a little cheaper.
While on the phone to the Royal family bookings office to enquire about what was the preferred brand of cigarette for Princess Margaret we were informed that she already had a lengthy appointment at the King George VI Memorial Chapel in Windsor. Slightly miffed we considered contacting celebrities Rod Hull and Emu to see if they were free from their new career as TV aerial fitters when Buckingham Palace phoned back to say that it was Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II who had confirmed the visit, and anyone who had thought different had a mental defect, we couldn't argue that. In fact, this was handy as it meant we didn't need to re-print our "Royal opening" flyers and posters.
The Royal visit was on.
