The Les Gostick Memorial Statue

Nearly 2 years ago on the 11th October 2014, a living statue was seen on the streets of Sleaford. A collaboration between the Civic Trust and artsNK, this was a venture to seek publicity but also to gauge public opinion on the Les Gostick Statue.

Although public opinion was greatly in favour of a statue and a site was suggested in Monument Gardens near the Museum, excessive cost made the statue unattainable.  Les was not forgotten however and the Civic Trust were determined to produce an appropriate way for Sleaford to remember Les and his invaluable contribution to saving the River Slea.
