Lady Astor 100 Statue Campaign

Winning Design: The Vision of Hayley Gibbs

A vision of the statue of Nancy Astor, the first female MP ever to take a seat in Parliament has been revealed today. The sculptor has been announced as Hayley Gibbs, whose designs were chosen to create the statue which will be installed outside the MPs former home on Plymouth Hoe.

Funds for the statue were raised in less than 3 months by the public. It is hoped to be in place by November to mark 100 years since she was elected.
