Memories of Queen’s past visit in 1951

When the Queen came to Lewes in 1951, when she was still Princess Elizabeth, I was part of a Girl Guide guard of honour when she planted the Tulip tree in Grange Gardens. Each time I pass it I am astonished at how huge it has become; I also notice that the commemorative plaque could do with a clean!
