Following the roaring success of the Gorilla Trail in Bristol last summer a new life-size ceramic gorilla called 'Maporilla' has arrived at Stanfords Bristol .
Maporilla has been beautifully painted with a unique and colourful map of Bristol by artist Rebecca Howard who previously designed the Green Map for Alastair Sawday's book Bristol: A Guide to Good Living. Now that the painting of Maporilla is complete, we're offering you the chance to win the life size gorilla for your school or organisation! The winner will be notified just before Christmas – so plenty of time to make a bit of space! Second prize will be a small ceramic replica of Maporilla.
The life size gorilla has been appointed an 'honorary' member of the new Nailsea Miners Rotary Group as part of their membership drive. Della Hudson, the president of the 'provisional' Nailsea Miners Rotary Group said ' we're delighted that Maporilla has been able to join us. Maporilla is a colourful character in more ways than one and we feel that as a rotary group looking to attract a younger membership he will help demonstrate we're something a little different form the norm. If you are interested in joining please contact Alison Hull on 0777 361 3510 or email firstname.lastname@example.org. Alternatively drop into The George at Backwell at 7.45pm on Tuesday evening.
