Sculpture to be unveiled later this month
A SCULPTURE commemorating a school's former home will be officially unveiled later this month.
The figures of two children have been created by sculptor Tom Whitehead to mark the site occupied by Mangotsfield Church of England School for more than a century from 1876 to 1999.
The site off Richmond Road was redeveloped for housing after the primary school moved to its new home in Church Farm Road, Emersons Green.
Developer Cotswold Homes has paid for the sculpture, which stands in Richmond Grove.
Two former pupils who attended the old school will be among the guests at the ceremony, which is due to take place on October 12 at 11am, along with ward councillor Michael Bell and residents' association chair Clive Heath.
The unveiling group has been limited to six people – anyone who would like to see the unveiling will need to attend as part of a group of six or less people and observe social distancing from other onlookers.
