Louise Greasley Memorial

Louise's sculpture is up! Massive thanks to Jason Heppenstall the sculptor, Russell the builder, Dave Riley and Tony.

Starting at 7am on Saturday, 29th April, and Bank Holiday Monday, 1st May, we measured, dug, shovelled, pushed, pulled, welded, hammered, poured and dragged a reluctant 50 stone angel into position. I wanted her in a position where anybody entering and leaving Hinde House could see her.

Bacon butties were consumed, coffee drank, heads scratched and fingers almost lost.

The following weekend, the concrete plinth was bevelled, ground and polished. Turf was replaced and Jason gave her a quick clean.

The gardening club have planted flowers around the base and later a plaque and solar lights will be fitted.

Thank you to everyone for their support, patience and donations – respect to George Brown who raised nearly £300 on his own.

Thank you to Sam, Dawn, Mel and Cath who endured my language when the required method assessments, risk assessments, hot works permit, engineering drawings, wind and stress calculations, concrete delivery, haulage and plant hire were all beginning to gang up on me!

Thank you to Mick Pullen and Mitie for financially contributing to the cost of her installation.

Thank you to Trevor Sears for delivering her for just the cost of his diesel.

Louise – wherever you are, I know you will love your angel. Love and miss you so much xxx

[Karl Grayson]
