‘Bluebells’ public art springs up in Goring-by-Sea

We’ve just unveiled an eye-catching sculpture – ‘Bluebells’ – at our Aspects development in Goring-by-Sea.

To mark the occasion, we welcomed the Mayor of Worthing, Councillor Vic Walker; Councillor Bryan Turner, Deputy Leader of Worthing Borough Council and Executive Member for Regeneration, together with other members of the Council.

The sculpture is a witty modern take on a cluster of bluebells, with the ‘flowers’ made up of small figures of people that represent the new community. It was designed by local artist and sculptor Traci Moss who won a competition run by Metis Homes and Northbrook College.

Councillor Bryan Turner said:  “The Council is very keen to encourage public art and we welcome the striking sculpture that Metis Homes has incorporated into its new housing development in Goring-by-Sea. As a governor of Northbrook College, I was especially pleased that the sculpture was developed in partnership with the college and it was a true community effort.”
