Someone has been sleeping in my field… If you’ve been travelling through Newtownstewart, chances are you have caught a glimpse of the impressive sculpture of Goldilocks and the Three Bears located near Abercorn Bridge!
The colourful spectacle was built to add an element of fun to launch the Two Castles annual community festival which will begin on Sunday, August 27.
Hosted by the Two Castles Community and Development Association, the festival will feature a range of activities for all the family, including a barbecue, dance, a kid’s camp overflowing with fun and games and a much-anticipated Tractor Truck Run.
All proceeds from the event will go towards a breast cancer charity and the Kevin Bell Repatriation Trust.
Ethna Conway, who is secretary of the Two Castles, said that the sculpture brings a ‘great buzz’ to the town of Newtownstewart.
“It’s an outstanding work of art which catches everyone’s imagination,” she said. “Every last detail on the faces and costumes have been considered, and we are so pleased with it.
“The sculpture sits proudly in John Gallagher’s field.”
