Efforts to make Holbeach a more arts-friendly town have moved forward with the unveiling of a new sculpture.

The flower-themed artwork, made with chicken wire mesh and artificial flowers, is now on display near the car park in Park Road.

Parish councillor Isobel Hutchinson, who designed the sculpture with her daughter Sophie, said: "It is meant to look like a cascade of flowers and the thinking behind it is purely to brighten up neglected areas of the town.

"Hopefully, it will make people smile and appreciate art in all its forms."

The flower sculpture is the third piece of artwork to appear in Holbeach over the last two years.

In January, Coun Hutchinson and her daughter created a Meridian Stones portrait for a bus shelter in Wignals Gate.

Next week, students from Spalding High School are set to finish a mural outside Holbeach Town Football Club's ground in Carter's Park which they started in 2016.

Coun Hutchinson said: "All of these projects have been done in support of Holbeach Town Action Group to help brighten up and improve areas of the town for the public to enjoy and, hopefully, inspire more people to become creative (read more here).

"The latest piece was also created to help with the Holbeach in Bloom campaign this year and it will remain in place for an indefinite period of time.

"We have had many positive comments whilst working on the project and hope that people enjoy it for many months to come.

"In addition, we have some more ideas in the planning process so people may see some more work popping up over the summer, with a view to creating an art trail around the town in order for people to discover things of interest here."
