Cloughie Statue Unveiling

You are all invited tomorrow morning at 11am in Albert Park (near main gates) to see the statue unveiled by Barbara Clough and Brian's family.

I have actually seen the statue and it is superb - can't wait to see it in all its glory and setting tomorrow.

Please spread the word - so many of us donated money towards the bronze sculpture - so please come along and see Brian in the park.

Rob - what sort of mechanism have they utilised to give the impression that the statue is walking??

Starting to see why it cost so much.

Brian has one foot raised off the ground and is perched on the toes of his other foot. There is a steel rod running up the leg and through into the body for stability it is driven into a solid steel block beneath.

I wonder if the Statue will get any national Media coverage i.e Skysports news,BBC News or any of the Newspapers.

We shall see.

I hope it gets big coverage - I do know that on a local level Radio Cleveland are running an exhibition in their new entrance area - a celebration of the life of Brian.

Woody I will get some photos and put them on the site - have got some already actually but that would be a cheat and spoil the surprise for everyone.

Anyway - if anyone is available tomorrow do get down to the park for 11am. Would be nice to see you there.

rob, if a TV camera is thrust in your face, wipe your nose if necessary.
