A plaque presented by the Lord-Lieutenant of Surrey to commemorate the Coronation of King Charles III has been unveiled in Normandy village.

At the unveiling ceremony Lord-Lieutenant Michael More-Molyneux, gave a brief speech about the significance of the plaque and described the jubilation and splendour of the Coronation in Westminster Abbey. The plaque is placed on permanent display in a public place at Normandy Village Hall.

The Lord-Lieutenant said, “I am delighted to unveil this plaque in honour of Their Royal Highnesses, and our coronation celebrations. It is a beautiful and fitting tribute to this momentous occasion.”

The plaque was described as: “A splendid carved plaque made of metal, created by the British Ironwork Centre, the same team who made the National Monument Against Violence & Aggression (The Knife Angel) which was on display at Guildford Cathedral during March.”

The vice chairman of the parish council, Bob Hutton, said, “This plaque is a wonderful addition to our community. It is a reminder not only of the fabulous celebration event held in the village to mark the occasion, an event the Parish Council shared with St March’s church, but also of our commitment to the Monarchy.

“We are grateful to the Surrey Lieutenancy for presenting this to our village and to the British Ironwork Centre for creating this beautiful piece of art.”
