On 27 June 2019 the Friends proudly presented their biggest ever cheque to Fylde Borough Council to pay for conservation work carried out on the marble sculptures, Hebe (Rinaldo Rinaldi, 1864) and Amphitrite (Benjamin Edward Spence, 1865).

Both statues stand, approximately, an impressive twelve feet high including their pedestals.

At £6,700 it is the largest amount the Friends have ever given to enable cleaning and repairs to be done to works of art belonging to the Collection.

The Mayor of Fylde, Councillor Angela Jacques, who very kindly attended our Double Celebration event in June, received the cheque on behalf of Fylde Borough Council when this and other presentations were made.
