A COUPLE received the royal seal of approval for their work with children in the county.

John and Shirley Hanson were invited to attend one of HM The Queen's garden party's by Herefordshire's Lieutenant Lady Darnley.

Mr Hanson was recognised for more than 40 years of involvement at Ivington Primary School while his wife has fostered almost 400 children over the past four decades.

The pair described the trip to Buckingham Palace as a "magical" and "unforgettable day" and even managed to talk about the beauty of Herefordshire with the Duchess of Cornwall.
