Hospitality Management students serve HRH The Princess Royal

Posted on Monday, December 17 2012

The purpose of the visit was to see and hear about some of the achievements that staff and students have had over the past year, including working on the Olympics.

She spent a lot of her day in the Media School touring the facilities and hearing from students.

However, School of Tourism Hospitality Management students were lucky enough to serve HRH Princess Anne canapΓ©s that they made for her visit.

Mhairi Strachan; Cameron Mcglone; Sarah Carter and Harry Watts were the students lucky enough to be chosen to be part of the serving team.

2nd year student Mhairi Strachan commented on the experience:

“For the Princess Royal to visit Bournemouth University it was an honour not only for the university but for the students.

Being part of the serving team it was again another great experience to be ambassadors for the School of Tourism and not only that but for the other students studying hospitality in the UK, and having that recognition.

It was definitely a surreal experience and one of the greatest achievements I am going to remember for a long time from now.”
