Queen Officially Opens Two Forest Pennant Schemes

Published: 12th July 2012

As part of the Diamond Jubilee Royal Tour, Wednesday 11th July saw Her Majesty The Queen officially open, not one but two prestigious schemes featuring Forest Pennant products.

Accompanied by His Royal Highness The Duke of Edinburgh, Her Majesty The Queen unveiled a plaque marking the official opening of Hereford Cathedral’s recently refurbished Cathedral Close.  At the heart of this refurbishment was the installation of a natural stone mosaic of an Apple Tree, created from 100 individual pieces, designed and supplied by Forest of Dean Stone Firms.

Later that day, the Royal Tour arrived at The Hive in Worcester, an integrated library, history centre and archive, to which we supplied ashlar, architectural masonry and coping for the ‘island’, and a complete package of Forest Pennant hard landscaping products.  Her Majesty The Queen officially opened the exceptional £60 million facility which has recently attracted much media attention.  The development is a partnership between Worcestershire County Council, the University of Worcester and Worcester City Council.
