Julian Poulter, director of Copy Catz printers and stationers was amazed to receive £500 worth of paper from Prince Charles. His Royal Highness has a charity called the Business Emergency Recovery Group and it offered help to those hit by flooding in Braunton.
Yesterday (Monday 25 February) a pallot with thirty boxes of paper arrived. His father David was due to meet the royal couple today.
Jane Steele and Ivan Rees at a Braunton cafe await Prince Charles and Camilla, Duchess of Cornwall. They were flooded by the River Caen on 22 December 2012 but opened in time for Christmas Day. Prince Charles chose them as they had reopened so quickly. Royal chocolate cake and tea is on offer.
People in Braunton affected by the recent floods can have their say at a drop-in session today [Thursday].
Devon County Council and the Environment Agency have orgainised the event in the town's parish hall from midday until 7pm. On Friday the meeting moves to Bishop Tawton and will be held in the village hall from 3pm to 7pm.
