A trail of sculptures for walkers and families to enjoy is taking shape.
The chainsaw art is being created at Barton’s Point Coastal Park, Sheerness, thanks to a £5,000 grant from Ideas Test (formerly Creative People and Places: Swale and Medway).
Canterbury-based Steve Andrews, who runs a wood sculpture firm called Tribal Animal, has been working on the structures.
Two are now complete – a woman sitting down overlooking the lake, which was designed by East Kent Mencap, and a swan-themed bench. He will make another four depicting a man, a dog, a crab and a cormorant.
A seventh, another bench, will be made by members of the community at workshops on the site off Marine Parade. It is hoped they will be completed by June.
Mandy Shade, who runs the Boathouse Cafe at the park, said: “We are very pleased – they are stunning. Steve has done so well – he’s amazingly talented and the sculptures are really something special.”
The workshops will take place over four days from Thursday, May 29, all day from 10am. Anyone is welcome to go along.
Every morning at 10am we play you an hour of tunes from the 90s. We call it, #WeLoveThe90s.
