LOWESTOFT is preparing to welcome a Royal visitor later this month.

The Princess Royal will be visiting the town on September 23 to officially open the new fire station in Stradbroke Road.

She is due to be welcomed by Suffolk's chief fire officer Andy Fry and other dignitaries, including Suffolk County Council chairman Joanna Spicer and leader of the county council Jeremy Pembroke.

During a tour of the new complex, the Princess will meet schoolchildren taking part in a fire safety lesson and also have the opportunity to meet firefighters who will provide a demonstration of the various equipment carried by the latest engines.

She will also see a training exercise when someone is cut free from a vehicle in a simulated road traffic collision.

Following the tour, the Princess Royal will unveil a plaque to officially open the fire station.

During her visit, the Princess is scheduled to visit the Royal Norfolk and Suffolk Yacht Club to take part in the club's 150th anniversary celebrations, and completes her engagements with a visit to SLP, in Hamilton Docks, to see how the company makes giant accommodation modules used in the offshore gas and oil industries.
