EFFORTS to resurrect Chelmsley Wood’s “Bogey on a Stick” are starting to gather pace.
Other Side of Solihull revealed last year that the Meriden Park public artwork – removed by Solihull Council seven years ago – was to be recreated.
Last month, Gro-Organic, the social enterprise which first came up with the idea to install a new Bogey, invited residents to have their say on what the new sculpture should look like. The organisation has already asked pupils at Fordbridge Primary, Bishop Wilson CofE Primary and Windy Arbor Primary to create their own interpretation.
The decision to involve local children in the design process is in line with the creation of the original artwork more than 30 years ago.
Residents also have the opportunity to contribute to the process by dropping in concepts to the Enterprise Centre, at Chelmund’s Cross.
