The Patrick McGoohan statue campaign (see news item below) led by Dave Miles and 'Team6' which would have seen a bronze statue of Number Six being chased by Rover in Portmeirion (first stage design, left) has been permanently shelved.
A Team6 statement read; 'owing to logistical matters and funding considerations, the aims of the project cannot be achieved in the short term. In view of this a decision has been made, with regret, to halt the venture at this point and all sums donated so far will be refunded. Team 6 are very greatful for the strong early support shown for the plans, but these cannot be achieved in the window of time originally envisaged.'
With thanks to Dave Miles of Team6 for this news item.
