A volunteer social enterprise worker is "very excited" at her invitation to the royal wedding but views it as an accolade for the whole team she works with.

Amy Wright, 26, of Annan, is chairwoman of the board of directors for The Usual Place cafe in Dumfries, which provides employability and training opportunities for young adults with additional support needs.

She has been invited to share Prince Harry and Meghan Markle's wedding day on May 19 along with Heather Hall, chief executive of The Usual Place.

They were nominated by the Lord Lieutenant of Dumfries and were delighted to be invited to the wedding day.

Ms Wright said: "It was a major surprise to the whole Usual Place team that we got this invitation.

"I didn't realise there were going to be public guests at the Royal Wedding and I feel as part of this team very proud at being picked.

"I think it's amazing for the whole team at The Usual Place but also for Dumfriesshire."

She added: "I think it's quite amazing that Prince Harry and Meghan have invited a large number of the public to their wedding."
