In 2020, artist Luke Perry was appointed by Featherstone Town Council to design a new artwork for Mill Pond Meadows. Following months of research and engagement supported by Arts Council England, Luke presented Fighting From Home – a series of sculptures that shine a light on the non-combat heroes of WWI.
We’re delighted that Luke’s commission has now been realised and will be officially unveiled on Friday 17th June 2022.
