January 29, 2013

This afternoon Elaine & I were at the Great Hall in Winchester to see the unveiling of a specially commisioned bronze roundel marking the Diamond Jubilee of Queen Elizabeth II.

The roundel, designed and sculpted by Hampshire’s Vivien Mallock, depicts the Queen’s head within the Hampshire Rose.

In company with the Lord Mayor of Portsmouth, and other Mayors from across Hampshire, we were amongst those introduced to His Royal Highness, the Earl of Wessex who then, after short speeches from the Leader of Hampshire County Council, Ken Thornber, and the Lord Lieutenant of Hampshire, Dame Mary Fagan, gave a brief speech and proceeded to unveil the roundel.
