Millennium Post – Where has all the ivy gone?

The millennium post erected by the Knowle Society outside the Guild House has gradually been overwhelmed by ivy growing up it, until the sculpture on the top was in danger of being lost. Two Society members spent a profitable hour last Wednesday (26th March 2014) clearing the ivy to reveal the post as it was erected. Those who liked some ivy can be relieved that the roots have been left, so it will gradually come back.

 

The work revealed that the sculpture has cracks so is in need of repair and also needs repainting. If anyone who has experience of this type of specialist work would like to volunteer, we’d be very happy from you.
