Treadgold Fish - anti-plastic art, help me fillet!
We did it
On 16th July 2019 we successfully raised £5,570 with 35 supporters in 28 days

I am making a giant sculpture of a fish in the shape of our city's star and crescent motif using scrap metal from Treadgolds in Portsea.

Awesome project, I wish you all the success. We need a tangible and attention-catching example of the damage caused by our single-use culture!

Treadgold fish - what an amazing idea - I wish you well with your project. I hope my grandchildren get to see this and take comfort from the fact that someone is making a giant statement to get people talking about plastic waste. Good luck
