Stainless Metalcraft Ltd gave the council a choice of designs for the planters and the Mayor Councillor Bill Haggata chose the final design.

It came as apprentices responded to the town council’s request for new planters to brighten up the gas lamps.

Under their community scheme, Metalcraft kindly agreed to donate the materials for the planters and apprentices.

Cameron Smith and Kieran Kirby used their welding and fabrication skills to create the unique pieces of artwork.
