Oak sculpture of a lone soldier, commemorating WW1 A new wooden sculpture created by chainsaw artist, Simon Groves, has been
installed on Caffyns Field, Littlehampton.


The sculpture, commissioned by Arun District Council, is of a lone soldier, in
remembrance of his fallen comrades. It has been carved from oak and
commemorates the centenary of end of WW1.


An official unveiling ceremony is expected to be held closer to Armistice Day in
November where the public will be welcome to attend a presentation on display.

 

 

Councillor Paul Wotherspoon, Arun District Council’s Cabinet Member for
Neighbourhood Services, said: “This is a great piece of art to commemorate the
100 year anniversary of the end of WW1. It’s fantastic to see such a thoughtful
project come to fruition and able to be enjoyed by the public.”
