Pride of place

An artist from Wellington beat off international competition to win a commission for a local Shopping Centre. Jacob Chandler created a 3m tall bronze statue that was unveiled at the Telford Shopping Centre’s main entrance to the new fashion quarter. The inspiration for Jacob’s sculptures comes from his cousin who trained to be a ballerina at Elmhurst, associate school of the Birmingham Royal Ballet.

At the unveiling, Jacob thanked people who had contributed to his current success including Grainger and Worrall of Bridgnorth and RL Holdings, of Donnington, who offered technical support throughout the process.
