It seems plain wrong that there is no statue of Woolf in Richmond. I look forward to visiting it in the near future. Stephen Foster - Foster Books

This is a wonderful project that honours Viginia Woolf and deserves so much support, and just think, if this beautiful statue is there on its bench, you could lay your head on her lap and read to her (if she allows, of course).

This is a great idea. I've always thought we don't much celebrate that Richmond was home to such an important literary figure, or mark sufficiently that this was the birthplace of the Hogarth Press. And it goes a little way to redressing the balance whereby ther are apparenlty twice as many statues of animals in London that of named women.
