Posted on

HRH The Princess Royal visited Jailhouse Cafe The Verne on 10 Dec 2013 as Royal Patron of The Butler Trust, which gave staff at the Jailhouse Cafe a commendation last year. Almost a hundred people who run and support the project at The Verne and Guys Marsh and local dignatories attended a Reception and The Princess Royal met staff from Expia CIC,IRC The Verne, HMP/YOI Portland, HMP Guys Marsh,volunteers, local community groups and regular customers who have all contributed to the success of the venture.The prisoners on ROTL provided the catering and were very pleased when The Princess Royal asked to taste one of the Xmas puddings on sale. It was a marvellous way to mark the end of the second year of the project and to thank many of the people involved.
