Hove's plinth receives a check up

The Hove Plinth sculpture has received a check-up from its creator after a windy winter.

Last week Jonathon Wright made sure that everything was ship-shape on the seafront artwork entitled Constellation.

A spokesperson for Hove Civic Society, which has masterminded the popular community art project, said: “Constellation has heroically weathered many storms on the Hove seafront and occasionally needs a bit of TLC.

“This morning Constellation sculptor Jonathan Wright came over to ensure everything was in order.

“Early morning promenaders watched a scaffolding tower going up and Jonathan in hard hat and high vis vest climbing five meters up to give Queen Victoria and other icons a check-up.

“We can confirm that all is well and Constellation continues to twinkle in the sun.”

Tonight (Wednesday March 24) Hove Civic Society hosts a free online lecture about the Folkestone Triennial.
