A new sculpture in Ponteland Park has received many positive comments from residents

The town council and Friends of Ponteland Park graciously accepted the Otter in Oak pi-ece.

It was created by top chainsaw artist Tommy Craggs, of Consett, and commissioned by June Atkinson in memory of her husband Leonard, who died in 2013.

They both loved wi-ldlife and she decided it would be a good gift to mark the return of otters to the River Pont.
