Vulcan win celebrated on plinth

From Wales Online today:

THE Save The Vulcan campaign has been taken to Trafalgar Square.

Pub regular Will Downie spent an hour bringing London’s attention to the much-loved Cardiff pub by standing on the empty fourth plinth, part of a nationwide art project by Antony Gormley.

Will, from Pontcanna, wore a “Save the Vulcan” T-shirt throughout his time on the 22ft high plinth – which he had altered to read “We Saved the Vulcan” after it received a reprieve in an 11th hour deal in June.

We also get a mention in the Canadian Vulcan Advocate:

The international publicity for Vulcan continues.

Dayna Dickens, Vulcan’s tourism co-ordinator, wrote a letter to a pub in Wales called the Vulcan, which was to be demolished, congratulating the watering hole for being granted a three-year lease.

“On behalf of the town of Vulcan, Alberta, Canada, I would like to extend to you our sincere congratulations for winning a three-year reprieve against the demolition of the Vulcan pub,” said Dickens.
