Duke to tour glass factory

Have your say

THE Duke of Gloucester will be one of the first people to inspect a factory’s new £5.4 million furnace when he visits Rotherham.

The Royal visitor will tour glass manufacturer Beatson Clark on September 6.

He will look around the factory to see how £10m of investment, including a new white flint furnace, have improved operations.

“It is a great honour for us,” said Lynn Sidebottom, sales and marketing director.

“We look forward to showing him how the glass process works.”
