Programme-selling Fenland army cadet interviewed on Sky News at Royal Wedding

THE Royal Wedding proved to be a memorable event for one Fenland woman who joined army cadets in selling official wedding programmes in London.

Kay Storey-Minnis, 38, from Manea, is a second lieutenant with the City of London Army Cadet Force (ACF). She was part of the team selling the souvenirs of Prince William and Kate Middleton’s big day in Green Park and to the crowds in front of Buckingham Palace.

Ms Storey-Minnis, said: “It was an amazing experience and I met people from all over the world.

“The atmosphere was wonderful and we were there to witness the kiss on the balcony and also the fly past – it was marvellous to be part of a historic moment in such a huge, good natured crowd.

“My only disappointment is that my partner Guy is a serving RAF officer, currently deployed overseas, and was watching the BBC coverage, hoping to spot me.

The 38-year-old is the daughter of the late Ken and Dawn Storey, formerly of Job’s Lane, March, and is one of more than 47,000 ACF cadets across the country.
