The Meerkat Stands Tall in Rural Nantwich
Proudly looking out over motorists in rural Nantwich, the statue is built on a 6ft base and has lights in its eyes.

Each year, staff at Snugburys Ice Cream Farm, Hurleston, celebrate the summer with a new design. Director Chris Sadler and his wife Cheryl come up with the ideas and the creations are made by Mike Harper, who builds a steel skeleton which is then stuffed with hay.
