Winning Sculptor Announced

Sculptor Eve Shepherd has won the public vote and will create the statue of Emily Williamson.

Eve said: "I'm deeply honoured to be chosen to create the Emily Williamson statue for the bird loving community. I feel very humbled and privileged to sculpt such an important pioneer and Eco-activist. She was an incredible visionary, a quiet, yet stoic woman, who stood against the norms of her day. She co-created a legacy, the RSPB, a charity that has saved countless bird lives and protected precious natural habitats for future generations to enjoy. In my eyes Emily is a shining beacon of how we can save our fragile ecosystem in these unprecedented times."
