Residents are being invited to have their say on a new sculpture that is being proposed for Moormead Park in St Margarets.

The sculpture is to be created from the stump of a tree which was felled in 2018, after its condition had declined beyond being able to recover naturally.

It will take the shape of a man carving himself out of the tree stem and will incorporate a QR barcode which will play music when scanned.

The sculpture, carved by Derek Pearce, is representative of the ‘self-made’ man and a miniature of the proposed sculpture will be displayed in the Civic Centre, York Street, Twickenham throughout March.

Cllr Martin Elengorn, Cabinet Member for Environment, Planning and Sustainability said: “Sadly, this tree had to be felled so it is good that we have been able to preserve part of its stump as a sculpture in Moormead Park. If you think this project should go ahead please do take part in the consultation.”

The consultation closes on March 31. Have your say by visiting
