Mayflower plaque illuminated



Last year the Town Council commissioned an artwork by the sculptor John Doubleday to commemorate the 400th anniversary of the Mayflower sailing. The artwork was installed in Jim Shields Garden at the bottom of the High Street in November. The final part of the project was a plan to install a spotlight to illuminate this amazing piece of artwork at night.

We are pleased to announce that the project has now been completed and the spotlight has been installed. We would like to thank Bennetts Funeral Directors who made a financial contribution towards the installation of the light which we think has greatly enhanced this fantastic piece of art in the Town.
