We are pleased to let you know that the Parish Council have agreed to the adoption of five of the remaining Tony Hillier sculptures, and we are in the process of arranging to install them around the villages. This will allow us to retain these much loved sculptures in Histon and Impington, with access for everyone to continue to experience and enjoy them.
Joan Hillier decided some time ago to find homes for these sculptures, and so some of the sculptures have already gone to schools and charitable organisations in Cambridgeshire. The Parish Council recognised the affection of the community for these art works and the desire to retain some of the pieces in the villages where they were made, and so we can now confirm that the Parish Council have agreed, with support from Joan, a plan to install the following pieces around the villages:
- Verge of the B1049 and Cambridge Road, Impington
Man and Dog:
- Homefield Park
Grandfather, Grandson and Dog:
- Clay Close Lane, Pocket Park
- The Green, in one of the trees
Sewing (Andy Cap):
- We have an offer from Highways to locate this at the Junction of Parlour Close and Cottenham Road. However, we are open to suggestions of other locations? Any location must be accessible to the public. If you have a suggestion please contact us at: firstname.lastname@example.org
We hope everyone will enjoy seeing the pieces in their various new locations, and we look forward to your suggestions for the final location of the “Sewing” piece.
