She said: "Thank you to all the staff, volunteers and children for welcoming me so warmly, and congratulations to you all for your courageous initiative, drive, drive, talent and professional skills that have enabled you to realise your vision of the arts centre in Great Dunmow."

Manager Jacky Rom invited the sheriff to visit The Arts
