Bristolians to Honour Heroes

Posted in Other News on June, 24 2006 9:08 AM

Following on from the award of the MBE to Aardman Animations founders Peter Lord and David Sproxton, it has now been announced that Wallace and Gromit are to be honoured with a statue in Bristol, their 'birthplace'.

The idea came from Terry Cook, a local councillor, who wants proper recognition for both the pair and the animation company.

Mr Cook said "We call upon the Lord Mayor to host a civic reception - with cheese - for Wallace and Gromit and their creators to add the city's seal of approval to their well deserved Hollywood sucess."

"We further call upon the council to support... a permanent commemoration of the city's highly-inventive heroic duo who have given so much work to Bristolians at their city studios - and so much pleasure to its citizens young and old."

The Wallace and Gromit productions have so far won three Oscars, the latest for The Curse of the Were-Rabbit.
