She was joined at the town's parish church by about 600 invited guests.

Public viewing areas had been set up at the church and on the route to a nearby marquee.

Princess Anne arrived at the church at about 12:00 and the service was followed by a reception where she met representatives from various community groups.

During the reception she presented British Empire Medals to a number of individuals.
