The crab it is
by Tav


Kenco Animal Sculptures
Kenco Animal Sculptures [Kenco]

I have put in the nomination for an glass animal sculpture for Baxter Gardens in Kidderminster. This is a competition being held by Kenco for a public sculpture to be given to a park or school. I originally chose the giraffes, but I figured (1) they may encroach upon neighbouring properties to the park (seen over the fence) and (2) the 'crab' sculpture is probably in Birmingham and so logistics would be easier than fetching the giraffes from Liverpool.

If you are confused with what I'm talking about, visit my previous blog, 'Giraffes, penguins, crab or snake?'.

My nomination was submitted as follows:

"Since residents near Baxter Gardens organised a 'Friends Of' group the facilities and presentation of Baxter Gardens has gone from strength to strength. The park hosts community events, fitness equipment has been installed, and the tennis club has a newly painted mural. It makes an enjoyable visit for young to old. However, the park is missing any sort of sculpture which others parks nearby already have. The 'crab' sculpture, which I enjoyed immensely in Birmingham, would be a crowning addition to be enjoyed by all and an appreciation to the groups efforts in making it a fantastic place to visit."

Fingers crossed.

It's all kicking off in Blighty Tav. The government have caused a petrol strike without a strike actually taking place, so all the petrol in Wyre Forest has run dry. The Upper Class village of Broadway is getting a £200,000 grant for an Ashmolean Museum...

I'll be attending, just out of curiosity though how much advertising was done outside the immediate local? This still doesn't feature on the WFDC events page nor the Shuttle's.
What we want is people from Brum or Dudley to look at the great...

What sounds great? The event or the fact that Tav has over 10,000 miles between him and Stourport?
