Worksop Guardian readers have suggested seven popular ‘characters’ who they feel should have a statue in the town centre.
From sport and rock stars, to community ‘legends’ – here are your suggestions.
1. Lee Westwood
Lee John Westwood OBE, the Worksop-born golfer, was suggested various times by readers who praised his pride of the town. Westwood is one of the few golfers who has won tournaments on five continents – Europe, North America, Asia, Africa and Oceania – including victories on the European Tour and the PGA Tour. One reader said: "He always mentions Worksop in news articles and is always positive about the town." Some feel a statue would be very fitting. Photo: Ross Kinnaird/Getty Images
