New sculpture coming to Isle of Wight

Tourists taking Isle of Wight holidays are to get the chance to view a new community sculpture that is on the brink of being unveiled.

Students at the Clatterford Tuition Centre are teaming up with local artist Glenn Martin to create a new structure, which is expected to be a mechanical plant of some kind.

Project co-ordinator Juliet Lainson at Clatterford stated she was "touched" and "overwhelmed" by the reaction the Wight Dragon has received during its time on the island.

"We took on board all feedback from that project and wanted the new sculpture to be similar but at the same time different to the design of the dragon," she said.

Councillor Dawn Cousins, Isle of Wight Council cabinet member responsible for education, added she is looking forward to seeing the new structure.

The Wight Dragon was moved from its original home at Coppins Bridge to Robin Hill Country Park earlier in the year.
