Duke and Duchess of Roxburghe at the AGA show
Another sell out for the show and we were delighted to welcome Angela, our AGA Sales Director. There was also subdued excitement as the Duke and Duchess of Roxburghe were spotted; our Scottish colleagues were particularly thrilled. A quick Google discovered the fact that Queen Anne gave the title of 'Duke' to the Roxburghe family in 1707 - the very same year Abraham Darby was granted a patent for the production of cast iron cooking pots using sand and a casting box, at Coalbrookdale, the foundry is still making AGA cast iron cooking pots as well as the AGA and Rayburn cookers. May both the Scottish Roxburghe family and Shropshire's foundry remain for another 300 years.
We also had The National Theatre Company visit with a group of their donors, the Mrs Moneypenny Returns show was on their list of 'must-see things' at the Edinburgh Festival fringe.
