Leamington Statue gets Cleaned for Christmas

Leamington’s Queen Victoria statue is getting a wash and brush up in time for Christmas.

The statue, which stands outside the Town Hall, was last cleaned ten years ago and district council staff agreed that she was looking rather grubby.

Scaffolding was put in place this week and Leamington firm Guilda and Harding, using a water-jet system, will start work on Monday. The work is expected to cost 2,500.

John McGowan, Warwick District Council’s policy planning officer said:

"The work should be completed in around ten days, just before the Christmas tree goes up during the second week in November."

The idea for sprucing the statue up is believed to have come from a staff suggestion scheme.
