Malvern Park horse restored following Solihull News appeal

SOLIHULL’s much-loved ‘Prancing Horse’ statue - badly damaged by vandals earlier this year - has been restored following a Solihull News campaign.

SOLIHULL’s much-loved ‘Prancing Horse’ statue - badly damaged by vandals earlier this year - has been restored following a Solihull News campaign.

Back in February, the famous fixture in Malvern Park had its tail and front leg hacked off by metal thieves.

This triggered a borough-wide appeal, backed by this paper, to raise the funds needed to repair the bronze monument.

The public raised £1,734 towards the work and the council this week announced several months of renovations were complete.
