The Princess Royal will be officially opening Holsworthys new livestock market on October 19. Princess Anne will enjoy a tour of the £6million building and meet those involved in the project, which began in 2012. Torridges deputy leader Cllr James Morris said: We are really honoured that the Princess Royal has kindly agreed to officially open the livestock market, which will be a fitting finale to the project. The market has already delivered a step-change in the economic vibrancy of the area and we look forward to welcoming Her Royal Highness and showing her around the modern and up-to-date facilities the market has to offer. Thousands of animals and livestock have already passed through the market since the first auctions opened in 2014.
