Louise Sculpture Update (6)

Louise sculpture is up.

Massive thanks to Jason the sculptor, Russell the builder, Dave Riley and Tony.

Starting at 7am on both Saturday and Monday we measured, dug, shovelled, pushed, pulled, welded, hammered and dragged a reluctant 50 stone angel into position.

Bacon butties were consumed, coffee drank, heads scratched and fingers almost lost.

Next weekend the concrete plinth will be bevelled, ground and polished. The turf will be replaced and Jason will be giving her a quick clean. Later a plaque will be fitted.

The sculptures position needed to be where anybody entering and leaving Hinde House could see her.

Thank you to everyone for their support, patience and donations – respect to George Brown who raised nearly £300 on his own.

Thank you to  Dawn, Mel, Sam and Cath who endured my language when the required method assessments, risk assessments, hot works permit, engineering drawings, wind and stress calculations, concrete delivery, haulage and plant hire were all beginning to gang up on me.

Thank you to Mick Pullen and Mitie for financially contributing to the cost of her installation.

Thank you to Trevor Sears for delivering her for just the cost of his diesel.

Louise – wherever you are I know you will love your angel. Love and miss you so much xxx
