Lewes prepares for the Queen's visit

Lewes is gearing up for a very royal visit when Her Majesty The Queen and the Duke of Edinburgh come to town tomorrow (Thursday October 31).

Already barricades have been put up and down Cliffe High Street, lining the way to Harveys Brewery.

The Queen and Prince Philip will tour the iconic premises and be entertained to lunch there as guests of Harveys.

Pat Clarke from Louispotts Lewes on Cliffe High Street is hoping the royal visitors will notice her collection of trinkets in the window (pictured).

The collection of mugs, dishes, bowls and a bell, depict members of the royal family.

Pat said her parents started the collection back in the 1930s and her and her family have been adding to it ever since.

She said: “We are very excited that the Queen is coming to visit and that she will be passing the shop.”

A sign in the window reads: “Louispotts Lewes - we offer H.M the Queen and H.R.H Prince Philip a warm and loyal welcome to Lewes.”

The Sussex Express will be keeping you updated throughout the visit.
