It was great to see so many people on Sankey’s Corner to witness this event – and see this amazing, unique piece of work by Mr. Walker.  Many people made a contribution towards and thanks were given to all in the speeches by the local dignitaries.  Many names of individuals and organisations are recorded in the book published by SCAMP and on the plinth.
