A unique table crafted for use at the 2021 G7 Summit has been presented to the Museum of Policing in Devon and Cornwall after it was gifted to the police by the Prime Minister, Boris Johnson.
The G7 Summit was held between 11th-13th June 2021, and saw world leaders gather in Carbis Bay, Cornwall.
The Chief Constable has donated a billet table to the museum, which was made for the G7 Summit by Falmouth designer Scott Woyka, who won a design competition. The table was gifted to Devon and Cornwall Police by the Prime Minister in recognition for the role the police force played.
Each of the seven member states of the G7 had a billet table, which they used for meetings and press events. This particular table was used by Germany’s delegates.
The table depicts the Cornish coastline around St Ives, and the two silver lines on the tabletop represent tin ore seams in the rock of the coastline. On the rear corner of the side panel is an engraved detail displaying the G7 emblem.
It will be displayed at police HQ in Middlemoor for the rest of this year. We are very grateful to the Chief Constable for this donation; the table is an incredible addition to the Museum’s collection. The billet table also contributes to the Museum’s broader plan of preserving the police’s involvement in the G7 Summit held in Cornwall.
