West Norfolk village invites 'royal' couple to cut jubilee cake
Wereham will be welcoming two guests with royal and also with local connections to play a key role in its Jubilee celebrations.
The village hall trustees were keen to find someone special to carry out the ceremonial slicing of the jubilee cake - a culinary creation from a rich traditional fruit recipe suitably iced for the occasion.
The cake cutting task has fallen to Charles and Ivy Humphries, former Wereham residents who have both worked for the Royal Family in London.
Mr Humphries held various roles working for Prince Charles, including working as his chauffeur and Mrs Humphries was a receptionist for the Duchy of Cornwall. They lived in the Royal Mews for 15 years and are extremely proud to have served the Royal Family.
Karen Everitt, the hall's community engagement and venue manager, said: “The trustees felt that Charles and Ivy were the perfect couple to ask to do this and are proud to have them on board.”
The official cutting of the cake will take place during the Big Fun Day on Saturday, June 4.
