New sculpture agreed for the Costessey Centre

The Costessey Centre will soon have the village logo- a knot- on display after the parish council agreed to pay for the sculpture.

Made from painted hollow fibre glass, the knot will cost around �3,500 to install, and will be placed on the outside wall at the entrance.

The decision was made following a debate at the parish council meeting yesterday, and a vote of seven councillors for the idea and five against.

Some of those opposed to the idea criticised the project as an unnecessary cost, and highlighted the fact that the idea had been turned down at a previous council meeting.

Councillor Alex Todd said 'I cannot justify spending that amount of money on a sculpture when everyone knows it's the Costessey Centre.'

However, it was pointed out that there was �127,000 allocated which had to be spent on the centre, while councillor Reg Piesse added:

'This expresses something about Costessey and its new confidence. It's a symbol of the place and we owe ourselves a whoopee gesture.'
