A PLINTH is to be created to try to prevent further damage to an apple sculpture given to Henley.

The 175lb artwork was presented by visitors from Leichlingen, Henley’s German twin town, in June. It was put into storage in December following concerns that damage caused by vandals would worsen in the cold weather. Since then it has undergone temporary repairs.

Patrick Fleming, chairman of the Henley-Leichlingen Twinning Association, hopes the apple will be back on display in the summer.He said: “The problem is that the cost of repairing it permanently is about £400. We will need to make sure it is protected and hopefully it won’t be damaged any further.”

The apple has images of landmarks in the two towns, including Leander Club, Temple Island and Henley Bridge.
