Roy recalls his royal visit to meet the Queen

To mark the Queen’s 90th birthday, Roy Staniforth, a resident at The Lodge Care Home in Killamarsh wanted to share his story of when he met the Queen.

Roy explained: “I met the Queen in 1997. She awarded me with an MBE for my dedication and commitment to amateur dramatics, and my work within the community. I was extremely humbled to receive this award, and was honoured to meet Her Majesty.”
