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 refurbishment of their church.
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 designed and made 163 St Wilfrid chairs and armchairs, two Deacons’ chairs, one president’s chair, together with a lectern, six servers’ stools, six benches for the choir, four choir frontals and four choir readers.
