  1. Pleased to announce that we are now well over the £50,000 mark, a tremendous achievement from all the friends and supporters of the statue fund. We are also getting a little help from Derby County FC and their supporters, this is in the way of them auctioning a bust of their legend, Steve Bloomer, see link for details. Although we have had an increase in the plinth names available we will be closing the list in the near future. We also have a weekly payment scheme in operation for anyone that wishes to purchase the limited edition mini-statue,this eases the situation of finding £150 in one lump sum. Also, for those with any Junior magpie children there is a unique opportunity to let your child be in with a chance of having a hand in the making of the statue at the WedgeWood studio in Stoke On Trent, please see team Magpie web site for details. http://www.jimmyandjackstatuefund.co.uk/events.html
  2. The fund raising committee held a meeting last Wednesday 24th July 2013. At that meeting it was unanimously decided that we would take the giant step and move the process on to the final level. To that end we gave the go ahead to our sculptor, Andrew Edwards http://www.cornoviiedwards.com/#!jimmy-&-jack to commence the making of the statue at his Wedgwood Studio in Stoke-On Trent. On Friday I was contacted by Andrew and he informed me that he had began work on the statue on Thursday 25th July, all was well and it was processing along nicely, the beginning of a major stage in the quest to have the statue in place at our Meadow Lane Stadium has begun. We also decided that we would like to connect our younger fan base and get that section of our supporters interested and aware of just how important Jimmy Sirrel and Jack Wheeler were, and indeed, still are, to Notts County Football Club. We intend, during the school holidays to take a party of 12-16 year olds over to the studio where the statue is being built, there they will have a hands on experience in the moulding of the clay that will be in the finished result, we are sure that it would be a life remembering experience for them.They will also receive a small souvenir to keep. On the same day we hope, in conjunction with Stoke CityFC, take them on a tour of the Britannia Stadium with a little hospitality thrown in. Numbers will be limited as it will be a mini bus, we will announce final details then invite all our supporters between the age of 12-16 years of age to apply and a draw will be made and the lucky ones will go. We intend to repeat this process for the future school holidays. There is still a fair bit of work and fundraising to do, but we are confident, with your support, that we can achieve the goal in 2014. J&J Statue Fund
  3. A truly magnificent effort during the past week from all friends of Jimmy & Jack. There are now only 60 plinth names left. Thanks to all http://www.jimmyandjackstatuefund.co.uk
  4. Hi Maybe i can throw a little light on the subject, they are japanese people and were filming a piece for Planet Football, which i believe is a supporter based programme. They did interviews with the Supporters Club and also came into the MLSB and donated £50 to the J&J Statue Fund.
  5. That's a good move, maybe this as well in a link : www.jimmyandjackstatuefund.co.uk

  7. Hi mate Best of luck with this venture, if done right it will attract the more "discerning" supporter to this site, which will be a refreshing change from "meet me in the bar to sort it " brigade. Sure the base will go from strength to strength.
  8. Looks a very good well laid out site, seems very user friendly and easy on the eye. I do hope that this forum is moderated well and it is not allowed to descend into anarchy with personal insults when people have differing opinions to the main stream of views. Long may it reign on that basis.
