The Duke of Gloucester took time to visit marine biological company Dryden Aqua during his recent visit to Midlothian.

Company Secretary Marilyn Wakefield said: “We had the honour of greeting HRH The Duke of Gloucester at our new AFM factory.

“He was introduced by the Lord Lieutenant of Midlothian, Sir Robert Maxwell Clerk, who very kindly helped in arranging the visit.

“Sir Robert Maxwell Clerk expressed a great interest in our AFM, a filter media made from recycled glass bottles and thought that the Duke of Gloucester would also find our state of the art, new factory in Bonnyrigg very interesting.”
