HM Lord-Lieutenant, The Dowager Countess of Darnley CVO was delighted to welcome His Royal Highness The Duke of Gloucester to Hereford on Thursday 3 October.

The Duke’s first visit was to Prometheus Medical, based near Leominster where he presented the company with the Queen’s Award for Innovation.  They were awarded the honour in recognition for a pelvic splint, which is designed to stabilise a fractured pelvis before a patient reaches hospital.

The next venue was the Hereford Waterworks Museum where he was joined by the Mayor of Hereford Kath Hey.  The Duke was given a tour of the Victorian water-pumping station building and grounds, with volunteers demonstrating a number of the engines which bring the story of water supply to life.

The final venue was to AW Engineering based in Madley, where the company celebrated its 25th year in 2018 and have recently been able to expand.
