New Chairman for NSS

John Hopkins (on the left of the photo with his successor, Terry Last) has stepped down as chairman of QMJ Publishing Ltd, the publishers of Natural Stone Specialist. At the company’s AGM this month (May), as a memento of 19 years on the board (17 as chairman) John was presented with a handsome boot scraper, commissioned from North Yorkshire-based sculptor Jennifer Tetlow. The base of the boot scraper was hand-carved into the shape of the QMJ logo from a block of Woodkirk Yorkstone, the sculptor’s favoured material, from Woodkirk Stone’s Britannia Quarries at Morley, near Leeds.
