The Earl of Wessex continued his tour of Lancashire on February 7, 2012 and this afternoon he was in the area known as Blackpool.

First, the youngest son of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II and the Duke of Edinburgh visited the Hornby St. Margaret’s Church of England Primary School.  From there the Earl toured the Bowland Pennine Mountain Rescue Team Training and Vehicle Base.

Afterward, the Earl of Wessex visited Nickelodeon Land in Blackpool, Lancashire.  Whilst there he posed for photos alongside Sponge Bob Squarepants and Dora the Explorer — don’t laugh — and then unveiled a plaque reminding everyone, who visits Nickelodeon Land, that he was actually there.

Finally, the day ended with a visit to the University Centre at Blackpool and the Fylde College to mingle with the students as well as staff.
