Our Headless Haaf Netter Statue

Well we should have all seen the local paper and the story of the headless haaf netter – if not we at the Community Council are looking to gauge the feelings of the townspeople regarding the statue at the roundabout on the way into Tesco.

The statue was commissioned and gifted to the town by Tesco when it opened its store the problem we have now is the head has been stolen and been the subject of a Police enquiry which although ongoing some people think its an eyesore others don’t notice it now.

We would like you to have your say and you can do so on our facebook page, https://www.facebook.com/AnnanOnline.

(a) Take it down and store it until funds become available for a replacement head .( estimated at around £2000.00)

(b)Take it down and scrap it and use the money for groups in the town

(c)  Leave it as it is

This post will be up for around four weeks and all reasonable replies will be taken into consideration lets all remember it was a gift to the town
