The Queen’s Golden Jubilee

The Queen’s Golden Jubilee

To commemorate the Queen’s Golden Jubilee in 2002, the Trust commissioned a mosaic illustrating aspects of Farnham’s history. Local artist Sally Smith was selected, and the mosaic was placed on a wall in a small courtyard at the back of Boots the Chemists, off the town’s Central car park, now known as Mosaic Court.  In addition, a carved wooden seat by the wood sculptor Will Glanfield was commissioned, and placed round the trunk of a tree in the courtyard.  The two works were unveiled by HRH Princess Alexandra in November 2002.  Regrettably, the tree has since died but the seat is in frequent use.
