ON 9 JUNE 2006


The Queen visited the Pepper Pot Day Centre in Ladbroke Grove on Friday 9 June 2006 to mark its 25th anniversary. This was her second visit following the opening of Centre.

The Queen was given a tour of the Centre and was officially welcomed to Kensington and Chelsea by the Mayor of the Royal Borough, Cllr Tim Ahern.

The Mayor said: “It was with great pleasure that I welcomed The Queen to the Pepper Pot Centre. I am sure that she enjoyed her visit and that is provided those who work at and visit the Centre with a memory that will last with them for the rest of their lives.”

The Centre, established in 1981, aims to provide comprehensive and high quality services to older people from the African-Caribbean community to enable them to live more independently in their own homes.

The Queen visited the hair salon and the holistic treatment room at the Centre, before viewing a pictorial history of the Centre on the walls. She also watched an intergenerational reminiscence session with children. The Queen also met Pepper Pot Director Louisa Farray, members of the Management Committee, staff, volunteers and guests before unveiling a plaque. Her Majesty viewed a steel band performance and heard members of the Centre sing a medley of “Happy Birthday” and “One More Step” before departing.
