Pleasant surroundings

We spotted new statuary in the park this week. The previous statues were broken off and stolen - someone was in obvious need of them! These ladies are all different and surround the pond in the Italian Gardens in Stanley Park. The pond is also being 'done up'.

The ladies don't seem to be impressed and look a little dour.

The statues are not 'collectable' and should remain in place for many years. Hopefully.

The last statue to be put in the park was of Charlie Cairoli but it had to be removed to a different site because of vandalism. Someone obviously didn't like the look of him!

I wish these 'someones' would think of others who like to walk in pleasant surroundings.



  1. So annoying! Why do people think they have the right to help themselves to things that belong to everyone? Glad they have replaced the statues but I think it is really upsetting that the original ones will have been flogged for a few quid and possibly destroyed by melting down if they were metal.

  2. I hope your new Ladies last longer than the previous ones did!

  3. I'll admit to not liking clowns...perhaps someone really took a dislike!

  5. Haha, I was in Stanley Park last Wednesday and noticed the pond was being done up.

  6. So much vandalism about. I'm glad the statues have been replaced, I hope they remain there this time.


Thank you for your comments. it's always exciting reading them.
