This Friday (20th November at 7.00pm) at the ABAX Stadium London Road sees the supporters launch night to help with the production of a statue of Chris Turner.
Shortly after Chris’s death a group of Posh fans got together and came up with the idea of life size statue of Chris to honour the Posh legend.
The group formed a committee to investigate the costs, logistics, planning permission etc. and have overcome a number of obstacles to take the project forward. They now need YOUR help.
A base, plinth, delivery of statue, erection, security and general maintenance will all have to be paid for, the exact amount is at present not known but it will be over £75,000. However massive and frightening this amount is, rest assured the committee are fully aware of the daunting size of the task ahead.
We are equally positive all Posh fans are behind the idea and that the finished product will give us all a focal point on a match day where we can pay our respects, use it as a meeting point (“meet you at Chris”) and be something to be proud of in the knowledge that we, Posh fans had paid for this amazing tribute.
The group have commissioned one of the elite sporting statues sculptor Mr Sean Hedges Quinn who is a football fan himself. Sean is responsible for the amazing statues of Sir Alf Ramsey, Sir Bobby Robson, Bob Stokoe and Ted Bates and his amazing work can be seen on his website.
So why not go along to the ABAX Stadium on Friday night to support this worthy venture.
