Campaign for a permanent statue of Sir Terry Pratchett in Salisbury

This petition had 9,795 supporters

Sir Terry Pratchett is a national icon when it comes to creating fantasy worlds that bring joy to millions of people. With over 70 books and 75 million copies sold worldwide, he created a powerful legacy that has encouraged reading and creativity. And here in Salisbury we were lucky enough to have him as a local resident for over 20 years. He worked with local people and artists, and made wonderful contributions to the local hospital.

But there is little to inform the guests and residents of this vastly popular city of Sir Terry's involvement, or the love the community had for him in return. Salisbury take pride in many notable statues and works of art across the city, but we would like to campaign for a permanent statue, in a prominent location, in memory of Sir Terry's incalculable role in the culture of this country. 

Our aim will be to contact local officials via Salisbury City Council to either encourage them to take on the project themselves, or grant us permission to work with them in making it happen. If funding becomes an issue, it is possible that crowd-sourcing some of the costs could be viable, with any additional money raised going towards those charities supported by Sir Terry.
