Spalding's new statue reflects agricultural heritage when farmers said: "You're hired".
A new sculpture commemorating the May Hiring Fair for farmworkers and domestics was unveiled in Spalding’s Hall Place yesterday.
Local author and farmer Rex Sly, already immortalised in the Market Art Trail, unveiled the cast bronze statue created by Laury Dizengremel for Spalding and District Civic Society and Transported Arts.
Rex told the assembled crowd: “I think this is a reminder to present generations and future generations it was the agricultural industry and horticultural industry that really built Spalding and made it the fine town that it is.”
