Trailblazing Bridgnorth

Cllr Julia Buckley has launched a bid to bring an art statue trail to Bridgnorth. Following a unanimous vote by council members in July, offers have been pouring in from artists, community groups and businesses to support the set up of the scheme, which would emulate Wolverhampton’s Wolves in Wolves trail (pictured).

Cllr Buckley said, “Everyone in Bridgnorth is excited by this opportunity to show off our creative artists, independent businesses and fabulous community groups to tourists visiting our town. The first question we will explore is which animal or theme the statues should be. There’s a lot of support for a ‘spot the otter’ trail!”
The trail, which aims to place 20 sponsored statues around town in a walking trail by spring 2018, invites local businesses to sponsor statues created by local artists – anyone interested in getting involved should email juliabuckleylabour@gmail.com.
