Lifeboat Horse Appeal
Did you love the sculpture of the lifeboat horse on the marsh?
Would you like it to stay in Wells?
This particular exhibit created such a positive response to visitors and residents that we are leading a fund for it to remain. We are therefore asking businesses and individuals if they would like to contribute to the cost of purchasing the piece for the community and placed in the Harbour. The total required is £15,000. We will need to raise the total by the end of January 2019. All donations are welcome, no matter how small. The Harbour will donate an amount towards that cost and will pay all ongoing costs for insurance, maintenance and winter storage.
We are keen for this sculpture to remain as part of the town’s heritage as a dedication to the horses that pulled the 33ft lifeboat two and a half miles from the quay to Holkham Gap.
If you would like to contribute please contact us at the Harbour Office 01328 711646. Or, if you prefer, you can send a cheque for your donation to The Old Lifeboat House, Wells-next-the-sea, NR23 1AT. Please make cheques payable to “Wells Harbour Commissioners”. Cheques will not be cashed unless the full £15,000 has been raised by the end of January 2019. If it has not been raised by then cheques will be returned - please give us your name and address for that purpose.
