You may have noticed that quite a few of the mosaic tiles are falling off Venus and Cupid. Investigations have revealed that this is due to the severe frost of last winter. The grout which holds them to the base has broken down in places. Moisture has crept in and we now need to start a repair programme. Meanwhile we are posting notices asking children not to climb and swing on the sculpture, as this makes it worse.

BUT the repairs will cost serious money!

We have started a fundraising campaign to help pay for the repairs. If you would like to help please click on Make a Donation (one-off) or Make a Monthly Donation  in the right hand panel, or click on

We will be posting our plans on this website to give more information on the repair programme as it develops.
