THE Duke of Gloucester will be visiting a Woodbury home and place of work for adults with learning disabilities.

His Royal Highness Prince Richard will be visiting Stallcombe House, on Tuesday, April 7, to see at first hand the way the community home supports its residents and daily service users to develop and learn new skills.

During the visit Prince Richard will be presented with a felt picture made in the Art and Craft Therapy Centre, and will also plant a donated Bramley Apple Tree, before unveiling a commemorative plaque and signing the visitors' book.

The community set in 50 acres of grounds is going through an enterprising period of development and expansion with plans for new purpose built and modern accommodation to expand the number of people able to benefit from its work.
