Where's the art gone?

I've had a few questions about the disappearance of the community artwork opposite St Michaels Church in Garston.

This is/was a series of panels designed to celebrate the life and achievements of Garston born Jack Jones.

The panels were on display on the bit of vacant land opposite the church (by the bridge).  There was a bit of graffiti, and then a couple looked loose.  But all of a sudden they were gone (leaving just the frame).

Anyway, the good news is that they haven't just disappeared.  They are in storage as people were worried about future damage and the need to make sure they were protected.  The group involved in the whole project is going to get together to discuss the best place for the art so Garston people (and others!!) can see it and that it is also safer from vandalism.

I'm not sure how long it'll be before there is any news but I will post it when I have it.  It was good to see that people were genuinely interested.
