Look back at the Countess of Wessex's visit to Alfreton

Post by LauraHammond »

Today marks the two-year anniversary of the Countess of Wessex's visit to Alfreton.

She came to town to officially open the David Nieper Academy and she also visited David Nieper.

At the time of her visit, Christopher Nieper, chief executive of David Nieper and chair of trustees at the David Nieper Academy, said: "It has been a great privilege to receive The Countess at both our Academy and the fashion house today.

"The David Nieper Education Trust was established to forge closer links between business and education, giving children a privileged connection with local employers and a career enriched curriculum.

"We are incredibly proud of all the teaching staff, students, employer partners and also staff from our own business who have worked so hard to make the Academy such a success.

"We are grateful to The Countess for her support and endeavour to continue our work to ensure that all young people have equal access to good education regardless of where they live."

We've dug out some of the pictures from the Countess of Wessex's visit and posted them below - do you have any pictures of the day that you could share with us?

What about your memories of the day? We'd love to hear those too.
