Harold Hill teacher receives letter from the Queen
A teacher said she was “over the moon” when she received a letter from the Queen.
Victoria Townsend, 27 from Pyrgo Primary School in Settle Road, Harold Hill wrote to the Queen in September after visiting Buckingham Palace for a tour with her family and hearing of her plans to visit Harold Hill.
“We looked around the rooms, it was amazing and my son loved it,” said Victoria.
A self confessed royalist, she wrote a four page letter to thank the Queen for the day and to share how big a year this was as she had graduated, started teaching and was getting married this year.
The Queen replied thanking Victoria for supporting the monarchy and congratulating her on her big exciting year.
