Instead of a cuddly toy, Prince Harry received a polished stone at the Barton Neighbourhood Centre yesterday.

It had been made by 38-year-old Claire Waldron, who works Monday to Thursday at the centre.

The stone had the full name of the Prince’s new-born baby, Archie, on in Old English font and took two hours to make.

The Oxford Times:

Ms Waldron said: “It’s such an achievement to have Harry receive my gift - it’s amazing.”

The Prince jokingly said that his son will be surprised to find the rock with his name on and gave Ms Waldron a hug.

The visit to the neighbourhood centre was the Prince's final appearance in Oxford today.

Crowds cheered as they lined the streets and schoolchildren waved Union Jack flags as the Duke of Sussex arrived at the centre that has just had a £1million revamp.

The Oxford Times:

The Prince spoke to people and accepted hand made gifts from children including paintings and cards sending well wishes to his new-born, Archie Harrison.

The Duke then went into the centre and was ushered downstairs to an activities room where the team from Thrive – an initiative to ‘raise the next generation of role models’ in Barton – did a ‘building bridges’ game.

After speaking with members of the team, thanking them for their hard work in the community, Prince Harry was shown the food bank which has been run by volunteers at the neighbourhood centre for 8 years.

Mandy Parsons is a volunteer at the centre and says it has greatly benefitted local people.

She said: “Food is donated to us, we find out how many people need our help and create packages for them to come and collect. It really helps people, especially families. Even the basic things mean a lot.”

The Oxford Times:

Barton Neighbourhood Centre has recently been refurbished by Oxford City Council to create a health and community hub.

It is now home to a GP surgery, community café, community hall, sports hall, advice centre, police office, youth club and other services and facilities including the food bank.

Sue Holden, secretary of the Barton Community Association, said she was happy to see Prince Harry show his appreciation for the hub.

She said: “It was incredible having Prince Harry here and I feel very honoured and proud that he came. I told him to give our love to Meghan and Archie.

“It’s a positive experience for Barton. It’s an area of deprivation but I like to see the positive side of Barton - It’s changing for the better.  It’s important to see change come out of it and there’s been a huge difference to how it was 10 years ago.”

A café is also at the Barton Neighbourhood Centre which serves meals for local people at a cheap price.

The Prince spoke with some of the people who were enjoying a meal and joked with them, saying he wished he had been invited to eat with them too.

Before leaving the centre, The Duke of Sussex unveiled a plaque and cut a cake, officially reopening the neighbourhood centre to the public.
