The famous Rushbearing ceremony when townspeople carry bearings decorated with flowers and greenery takes place annually in St Mary's. Appropriately, rush seated solid oak chairs were chosen by the congregation to replace old pews in the nave as part of a re-ordering and refurbihsment of their church.
They chose the St Wilfrid's chair which has a wide rush seat and extra back bar for support and requested a shelf for books and kneelers.
One hundred and fifty were delivered and are arranged in gentle curves, their oak frames complementing the oak parquet of the new floor.
Nearly 300 bespoke oak chairs made by Treske have replaced the old pews in the nave of Ripon Cathedral, and are now also being used in the choir.
Treske were chosen for their extensive experience of supplying churches with custom designed, hard-wearing, robust furniture. The company designed and manufactured 425 solid oak chairs, an altar table, a solid oak pulpit, a wall cross and a credence table especially for St Andrew's Church, with the St Andrew's cross hand-carved into some of the furniture.
For All Saints Church in North Lincolnshire Treske designed, made and installed nearly 220 side, arm and folding chairs, hymn book and Parish room cabinets including choir vestry cupboards and a historical wind instrument display, a specifically designed altar and one memorial book stand.
