Mixed reception to stone animals

By Martin Chapman on Thursday, 30th August 2001.

RESIDENTS have give a mixed response to the Town Council’s plan to carve stoned animals in to Jubilee Walk.

The council is considering the plan after a member of the public contacted the council after seeing a similar scheme in Bedford.

Members of the council's Leisure Committee were told that the stonework was by a Cambridge company and costings are being sought for a smaller version for Jubilee Walk.

The idea has been attacked by a number of residents who have commented saying the Town Council lacks original ideas, and said the town needed: “an overall idea” as opposed to “copying this and that from somewhere else.”

Gordon Mussett, Town Clerk, defended the scheme saying: “Rather than keep replanting, the Town Council has been considering other options - including having a small under-7's play area with fixed equipment. The stone animals suggestion put forward by a resident will be compared against the mass-produced play equipment “

The council’s leisure committee were informed that costings were being considered for a smaller scale scheme in Jubilee Walk.
