Inspired by the ancient name of HOPE village the idea evolved to work with its natural optimism and to use with that mood the widest possible meaning of the word ALL in All Saints. Accordingly sculptures of saints of every kind are invited for this inclusive and original project.
Those who have benefitted humanity in art, science, philosophy medicine, agriculture or in any other way no matter what their religion, race or country of origin will be considered for the collection as also traditional saints with local relevance.
Already in place are a replica of the original Sanctus Bell in clay, an antique iron crucifix, St George and the Dragon, St Andrew of Scotland, St Agnes, St Gobnait, Patron Saint of Bees, a Quaker Light Sculpture and two figures of the Happy Human of Humanists UK.
More recently added works include Beethoven, Mozart, Sir Alexander Fleming, Nelson Mandela, Albert Einstein, Mahatma Gandhi, Confucius and more. We have sited three benches for those quietly visiting what is still consecrated ground.
