THERE was a long face or two when pupils at Rotherham’s Herringthorpe Infants School heard a prince wouldn’t be coming to call.
Prince Andrew’s visit to the school was postponed at the last minute when fog prevented his place touching down in South Yorkshire.
But, as they say, the show must go on.
Children and staff instead gave a warm welcome to the town’s Mayor, Coun Shaun Wright, waving the flags they’d prepared especially.
Coun Wright was shown why the youngsters are some of the most enterprising kids around – and were particularly keen to show off their pizza-making prowess.
Children are learning about the skills needed in the world of work, through the Rotherham Ready project.
And as for the Prince, there’s no need to be too downhearted – he’s re-arranged his visit for a fortnight’s time.
