The Alhambra cat sculpture has finally been installed in Barnsley Town Centre to many oohs and ahhs from passers by.
We got up very early a couple of sundays ago to instal before the shoppers arrived, we received delivery of the sculpture from Dan Punchard at 6am as well as the spider crane (required for access through the subway). After the face had been attached the sculpture which weighed nearly 1 tonne was lifted in place. Thanks to John Burton and the gang of trusty men from Trent Valley fencing Ltd and my husband Jason, everything went very smoothly.
We received thanks and congratulations from a local councillor and hope to have an official opening in a few weeks time after the local elections.
