A BARKISLAND ice-cream parlour will welcome the Princess Royal next month.

Princess Anne will visit Just Jenny’s at Hazel Slack Farm, Rishworth Road, on April 3.

Owner Jenny Clarkson’s mother Jane said: “We’re very proud that we’ve been chosen. I think it’s lovely and hopefully it will be good for business as well.”

The Princess will be shown how the ice-cream is made and be taken on a tour of the farm.

“We shall be making a mix on the day so she’ll be able to see how it’s made and she’ll be able to try it, if she wants,” said Jane.

“She’ll also be looking at our cows, where all the milk we use to make the ice cream comes from.”

It will be the last stop on Princess Anne’s two-day whistlestop tour of Yorkshire.

She will also visit Keighley, Ilkley, Beverley and Leeds.
