Mike Ferguson of the Ottery St Mary Coleridge Memorial Trust writes:

'With the success of our recent Crowdfunder campaign and other donations from fundraising that began in 2017, we have now been able to commission the making of our Samuel Taylor Coleridge memorial statue by the sculptor Nicholas Dimbleby.

With sincere thanks to each and every person who donated to this cause. We have further costs and will continue to fundraise, but we have reached that key point where we have truly begun making this project a reality.

With huge thanks to all who have donated. This is much appreciated. Without these donations providing a backbone to our fundraising, we would not have been able to receive our extra funding of £5000+ from East Devon District Council, and we therefore also offer our grateful thanks to them.'

It's excellent news, and the Friends of Coleridge would like to offer our sincere congratulations for all the hard work that the Trust has put in to securing the funding.
