Humpty Dumpty has landed outside our Greyfriars development of new homes in the heart of Gloucester as part of a sculpture trail with a twist.
Twenty individually decorated model Scrumpty figures have been inspired by mixing the local nursery rhyme character with the Rugby World Cup, which is being hosted by the city’s Kingsholm Stadium for some of its opening games.
The eye-catching Scrumptys have been installed around Gloucester and will be on show from August to October. At the end each one will be auctioned off to raise money for good causes.
Our western region is joining in the fun by sponsoring one of the sculptures, which has been decorated by professional illustrator and graphic designer Maria Burns, from Dorset.
Maria explained her inspiration: “I thought it would be good to show Scrumpty’s more feminine side. Also he is very similar to Humpty Dumpty who is always falling off the wall; I thought ‘Oops-A-Daisy’ would be something that he would say a lot!”
All waste plasterboard is recycled and used in the manufacture of new plasterboard products.
All of our toilets have a modern dual flush facility to conserve water usage.
