Couple behind donkey statue make plea for public support
VOCAL public support is now needed to see a large bronze donkey statue erected in Town, according to the sculpture’s owners, who have been told they need planning permission for it to be at Le Friquet Garden Centre.
Jennie and Geoff Dorey have been working on getting a statue put up in Town since before 2000 the turn of the millennia, and have invested more than £100,000 of their own money into the project.
But they have still met official opposition at every turn for years.
After having the statue built, they hoped they would get more support for their plans.
However, since its unveiling in September, it has not moved from the front of the garden centre, as attempts to find a place for it in Town have ground to a halt.
Now, the Doreys are appealing to the public to see if they can garner enough support to ‘get the ball rolling again’.
