The plaque was unveiled by HRH The Duchess of Cornwall at the opening of the Chailey Heritage Foundation Dream Centre on 17th October.

The plaque features an inscription with details of the name of the centre and the date of opening, which was hand-carved on to York Stone by one of Burslem’s stonemasons.

The Duchess’s mother, The Hon Mrs Rosalind Shand, volunteered at Chailey Heritage for 17 years in the 1960s and 70s and this was the Duchess’s second official visit to the charity.

The Duchess told the young people that she was happy to be back at the Charity and congratulated everyone on the completion of the Dream Centre.

A Chailey spokesperson said: “The Dream Centre will give all the children and young people from Chailey Heritage the chance to fulfil their potential. The immersive experience zone will make almost anything possible; from visits to the circus to the rainforest; we can’t wait to see what the young imaginations will come up with.”

Burslem have produced an enormous range of public commemorations, war memorials and private memorials, both locally and around the world. View more of our work here.
