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 FAREHAM-based charity is hoping that golf lovers will come down and tee-off to raise money for children with cerebral palsy.

The Rainbow Centre is holding its annual golf day at The Downs golf course at Goodwood, Chichester, on Thursday, April 25.

Along with an 18-hole round of golf, there will be a two-course lunch, an auction and a raffle, including a prize of a luxury three-day charter on board a yacht that sleeps up to 12 people.

Sarah Lake, project fundraiser, said: ‘We are hoping it will be a fantastic day and that it does not snow. We hope that everyone taking part has a good day golfing while raising money for our cause.’

The centre is a charity which helps children with neurological impairment and their parents, adults with Parkinson’s Disease, MS and those that may have suffered a stroke or head injury.

Tickets for the day including golf and meal are £100.

To get involved or register for the day contact Sarah Lake on (01329) 289500 or email
