A “wonderful” sculpture commemorating the Queen’s Diamond Jubilee has been unveiled in Chesterfield.

Each facet of the diamond-shaped artwork contains a significant event for each year of the Queen’s reign, either locally or nationally.

The sculpture was unveiled in Queen’s Park by Her Majesty’s Lord Lieutenant of Derbyshire, William Tucke, during a special ceremony on Sunday.

It was the idea of Staveley-based engineering firm Sterling Machining, which designed, created and donated it to Chesterfield Borough Council.

Cllr Amanda Serjeant, the authority’s executive member for leisure, culture and tourism, said: “The Queen’s Diamond Jubilee last year was a great occasion which saw communities in Chesterfield and throughout the country come together.

“It will be on permanent display in Queen’s Park and gives an opportunity for us to remember some of the momentous events that have happened during the last 60 years.”
