There are only five remaining locomotive statues left to be adopted by local residents, according to organisers of the popular, “Catch-me-who-can” Art Trail.

Residents are asked to make a weekly visit and check for any damage. For those statues near trees they may need a quick wipe down to remove any leaves or seeds, and report back to the “statue watch” team of volunteers for paint or varnish touch ups.

“The public response to the Art Trail has been overwhelming. Everyone has enjoyed watching our local children and visitors, enjoying the fresh air in our beauty spots and really appreciating our town. Residents have adopted the statues in spirit, now we need a few locals to keep a neighbourly eye and let us know of any maintenance needed.” Said Cllr Julia Buckley.
“Volunteers have already offered to adopt seven of the trains, so we only have a few statues left – get in touch to join the team on info@bridgnorth-art-trail.org.uk”
