Re: Outrage at Haslingden sculpture vultures

^

A large part of The Workers public art, which stands on the Tesco roundabout in Haslingden, is rotten and is in desperate need of replacement.

While the two stainless steel workers are standing strong, the large wooden ‘bobbins’ they are working on have become battered by the Valley’s weather.

Appeal to save iconic 'workers' statue in Haslingden (From Lancashire Telegraph)

They must be holidaying at Tor View school. Be lovely to see them back as colourful centrepieces

Re: Outrage at Haslingden sculpture vultures

And here we are several years later and the statues have not returned, also the wooden cable reels have deteriorated so much that they could not be considered a blooming ugly mess, possibly a dangerous one, woodworm could get hurt.
