Even though George V proclaimed all German titles were to be given up by his family a century ago (July 17 1917), there is still physical evidence in our city of the Germanic royal house that once existed. Two commemoration stones relating to members of the royal house previous to the House of Windsor are so readily a part of the fabric of our daily lives but are probably in the most part overlooked.

A walk along Queen Street and on the corner with Aylward Street will present a building with a foundation stone that was laid by HRH Princess Henry of Battenberg in 1912. This was the married title of Queen Victoria's daughter Beatrice which was relinquished on 14 July 1917. From 17 July 1917 she was known as HRH the Princess Beatrice.

A visit to Sainsburys foyer in Commercial Road will provide the opportunity to see a commemoration stone for the opening of the Child's Ward of the Royal Hospital in 1909 by HH Princess Victoria of Schleswig

A YOUTH club is pleading for donations after organisers found they struggled to cope when the membership doubled.

Crofton Youth Club in Stubbington caters for youngsters aged between 10 and 15 and runs three times a week.

But recently, the number of members has gone from 46 to 100 and organisers are pleading for help from the local community through donations and volunteers.

Vicky Stabler, youth leader of the Crofton Youth Project, said: ‘It’s been fantastic that we have increased our membership but we have doubled our running costs.

‘There are lots of things that we want to do with the children now but we don’t want to increase their subs.

‘There is a need for the service in the community.

‘There aren’t many youth clubs around nowadays.

‘There are a lot of children who would benefit from more money being put into the youth club or would benefit from people coming in.’
