Students of Reigate School of Art’s Heraldic Art, Calligraphy and Illumination course, have presented an heraldic scroll to Reigate and Banstead Borough Council to mark the King’s accession. 

The Council commissioned the students to create the scroll which will be sent to His Majesty on behalf of the borough.  

The King’s Scroll has been a year in planning and creation and illustrates the official Proclamation by the Accession Council which was then repeated by towns and cities throughout the UK. 

The students designed and created a beautiful and historic piece of work on fine calf skin, decorated with gold leaf and various motifs.

The Scroll has been signed by the Mayor, and Leader of the Council, and the borough seal has been added; it has been framed and will be sent to the palace.
