PUPILS at Marlborough School in Woodstock have delivered a commemorative bench that they designed and made for the Oxfordshire Museum.

The bench was made to celebrate the Queen’s Diamond Jubilee in 2012, with Woodstock Town Council asking schools for suggestions on how to mark the event.

The bench, which is made of light oak, now takes pride of place in the grounds of the museum at Fletcher’s House in Park Street.

It was unveiled by the leader of Oxfordshire County Council, Ian Hudspeth, and town mayor Julian Cooper.

Mr Cooper said: “It was a great project and the kids worked really hard on it. We want to do the same again next year to celebrate the museum’s 50th anniversary.”
