Princess Anne opens Bristol housing project

On Monday, Princess Anne officially opened a new development of nine self-contained flats in Bristol.


The Flats, which are run by the Bristol based national learning disability charity HFT, have been purposely built to enable people with learning disabilities to live independently in the community.

HFT supports people with learning difficulties and their families and has been providing person centred support since the 1960’s. Some of their key aims are to support people with learning disabilities to live where and with whom they want, develop skills through jobs, volunteering and to keep healthy and take care of themselves.

After opening the housing scheme, The Princess Royal visit the The Kingfisher School in St Anne’s that officially reopened after being converted to an academy. The Bristol primary school welcomed the Princess Royal in her position as an honorary member of the Society of Merchant Venturer’s. The schools 160 pupils were also joined by civic leaders including the city’s Lord Lieutenant, High Sheriff, Lord Mayor and Lady Mayoress.

The visit to Bristol was just one of many that the Princess Royal undertakes each year. Princess Anne is known the many engagements she carries out each year and will continue that role with visits to Berkshire, Birmingham and Leicestershire coming up in the near future.
