On Thursday 10th July 2014 work continued with returning Goddess Nike to Horndean War Memorial.

The scaffolding around the Memorial was carefully removed – the the final touches were completed. Nike’s outstretched arm of peace and her inverted sword were put in place – the memorial restored.

Nike’s outstretched arm is pointing east to the ‘dawn of a bright new future’, and the sword is inverted as a sign of peace.

On Wednesday 9th July 2014, after almost 50 year’s absence, Goddess Nike has returned to Horndean’s War Memorial.

Today Nike was carefully craned to her new vantage point in Horndean Village Square, replacing the lamp which had been put place almost 50 years ago after the Goddess statue was damaged in a freak car accident.

The re-dedication ceremony takes place on Sunday 20th July 2014 in Horndean Square.

Nike’s right arm and the inverted sword will assembled once the scaffolding has been removed.

Well, what a couple of days for Nike!

Displayed in Merchistoun Hall on Friday afternoon and Saturday morning, the small-scale model of Nike received tributes and lots of kind comments

It was a real tribute to sculptor Jose Sarabia from J Rotherhams who crafted her from pictures between 60 and 95 years old.

The News, The Petersfield Post and East Hampshire District Council sent reporters and cameramen.

Penny Plimmer from local business Japics Photgraphy also came to record the moment.

For a short while Merchistoun Hall resembled a Press Conference.

The stone from which the full sized Nike will be carved is on its way to Yorkshire and will be in Horndean, completed, at the end of June.

Donations and pledges were received from people visiting the model of Nike – and I will post the funds raised to date once confirmed by the office.
