History

History:Millennium sculptures created by Walter Bailey and local school children. Carved from single oak tree using chainsaw. Unveiling at Worthing High School, South Farm Road. …’a celebration of the open heart’. ‘The collection of sculptures will eventually take pride of place in the children’s ward at Worthing Hospital.’
(Worthing Herald, October 12th, 2000, p.27 ‘King of the Chainsaw’)

-he stated that the sculpture was not one of a group and not intended for the children’s ward, but the new main entrance to the hospital, which was never built.
(Interview with Dr Roger Edwards, retired Consultant Anaesthetist (Worthing Art in Hospitals) 15/05/08)
