Pontefract Civic Society commends the fantastic work achieved by Pontefract in Bloom in enhancing the town centre with hanging baskets and planters. Our trustees were therefore pleased to offer £300 to Pontefract in Bloom in sponsorship of the metalwork sculpture on Bridge Street.

The sculpture was created by Stephen Williamson for Pontefract in Bloom as a memorial for Brian Chappell, the founder of Pontefract in Bloom, who sadly passed away a year ago this month.
