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.
