Bronze sculptures of children at play will be moved from The Mall Gracechurch to Rectory Park following an appeal in last week's News to find new owners.
Peter Bell, project co-ordinator for Friends Of Rectory Park, contacted the shopping centre first thing on Friday morning to claim the three statues, which were installed in the Gracechurch in the mid 90s.
He acted fast after reading about The Mall management's wish to remove them as part of a revamp of the centre.
Now Mr Bell is trying to solve the mystery of the origin of the sculptures which show, respectively, a boy and a girl on rollerskates, a boy with a dog, and a boy and a girl playing leapfrog.
Our own enquiries, to The Mall and to Sutton Reference Library, have surprisingly drawn a blank on the identity of the sculptor.
Mr Bell said: "The Mall has kindly donated these charming sculptures to the Friends of Rectory Park for repositioning within the Park in close proximity to the children's play area.
"However, there is some confusion regarding the history surrounding the sculptures, in particular how Sutton acquired them and who actually did the sculptures, so if any readers have any information, please let the News know."
The results of the Friends' Logo competition was announced in the same edition of the News and the winners, Emma Ponter and Caitlin Meade, have been presented with their prizes at school assembly this week.
Emma has received a family ticket for four people to spend a day at Drayton Manor Theme Park which was kindly donated by Drayton Manor. Caitlin was given a £48 paint box, generously donated by Vesey Arts & Crafts of New Oscott.
The Friends of Rectory Park's Annual General Meeting takes place at 7pm on Thursday November 1 at Sutton United FC's premises in Hollyfield Road. All are very welcome.
