A series of 12 sculptures commissioned to honour The Queen’s Diamond Jubilee have been officially presented to Mayors from across Lancashire.
The sculptures were officially handed over to districts during an event hosted at County Hall by the Chairman of Lancashire County Council, John Shedwick.
The official presentations were made by the leader of Lancashire County Council, Geoff Driver.
Delivery of the sculptures will be taking place over the next few weeks. The overall aim is that the sculptures will then go on public display at Town Halls across Lancashire.
County Councillor Driver said: “We’re pleased that every district council within Lancashire will have a permanent sculpture to recognise The Queen’s Diamond Jubilee.
“Lancashire has traditionally had strong links with the Queen, in her role as Duke of Lancaster.”
The commission was carried out by artist Peter Hodgkinson, whose previous works include the Splash statue of Sir Tom Finney.
