Students have discussed their designs for a sculpture in Wyndham Park to mark the outbreak of World War One.

The visual arts students at Grantham College met David Sharpe who will create the sculpture based on the winning design in a competition being run by South Kestven District Council and Wyndham Park Forum.

After showing a portfolio of his work based around metal and recycled materials he often uses in his designs, he gave tips and pointers to the students on the competition theme of World War One and/or The Machine Gun Corps.

Designers are asked to consult his website www.davidsharpesculpture.co.uk or Facebook page David Sharpe Sculpture to see examples of his work.

More information about the history of the park to give inspiration for ideas, entry forms to download and a summary of the rules can be found at www.southkesteven.gov.uk/wpsculpture Wyndham Park Forum and SKDC announced the new dedicated sculpture is to be built as the first project having earned initial support from the Heritage Lottery Fund (HLF) and the Big Lottery Fund (BIG) in January.

Designs should feature a sculpture that is to be created to no more than two metres in height and two metres in width and not contain more than three human figures.

Entry forms are available on the Wyndham Park website, www.wyndhamparkgrantham.org.uk or in person at the Old Pavilion Tea Rooms at the park or SKDC’s council offices on St Peter’s Hill.
