Public Artwork for Saltergate

19 September 2014

Barratt East Midlands and Chesterfield Borough Council are to commission a permanent piece of public art to commemorate the club's former Saltergate home.

Representatives of the Community Trust and the Supporters Club are invited to attend an informal consultation event in The Hub, to be held at 7.30pm next Thursday after the Supporters Club’s AGM. 

Local artist Melanie Jackson will run the consultation, which has been arranged to gather members' views with regards to popular themes that could be drawn upon to inspire the artwork at Saltergate and decide what kind of feature would be appropriate for the site.  

The AGM is at 7pm, although supporters are welcome at The Hub from 6.30pm to look around the Memorial Garden and The Hub.

The following Saturday, Melanie will also be available at the entrance to the Proact Stadium for an hour before the match starts, to chat to fans and gather any views they have with regard to a piece of artwork at Saltergate.  

Melanie said: ''I am really excited to have been given the opportunity to design an artwork for Saltergate. My main priority initially, in order to produce something appropriate, is to make sure there is plenty of consultation with members of the club and supporters as I appreciate how passionate all these people will be about this!''
Anyone who requires further information about the artwork or the consultation should contact Peter Whiteley at the Community Trust.

The work is to be paid for by Barratt Homes and the European Regional Development Fund.
