Day 7- Not to many people out helping today, and the weather's not a patch on last weekend!
Never-the-less, we got into the last few bits to complete. HP and Nick was up on the JCB and carried on where they left of last week working on the shield arm. Ronnie and Rowan set to work on the feet and David and William set to a bit of a tidy up for me.
Julia, Dev and I began work on the hand holding the trident. We where joined by HP having finished the shield arm.
Nick, Shaun, Sam and Sid started to help David and William with the clear up, all the wood now had to be stacked around the sculpture.

All went extremely well this morning everything done and tidied up. When Dad and I locked the field up it was 12. All done and dusted, back Monday to burn it!
A lovely community effort had quite a few people out over the last month helping to put this together- thank you all.

Working on the shield hand and tidying - note the diamond patterning around the hem of her skirt.
And not sure if I've mentioned this - Britannia is facing the Mall and Buckingham Palace. Toward the last Beacon to be lit by the Queen herself.
Found this little fella, we relocated it to the nearby woods. Striking that Shaun seems to have the same nose! Charlie thought it funny!
And here is East Hoathly's tribute to Her Majesty and her 60 years -all done and ready for it's fate on Monday night
