Bristol Bears reveal club sculpture at Wild Place Project

first_imgMembers of the squad took a break from training to visit the wildlife attraction and help put a six-foot high bear sculpture, painted in their club colours, into position.The Bristol Bear has been painted in the side’s home shirt colours by illustrator, Jessica Perrin, who travelled from her studio in Birmingham to paint him in the eye-catching strip.The Bristol Bear is one of 20 bear sculptures that make up a new Big Bear Sculpture Trail at Wild Place Project. It officially opens on Saturday, April 6th and includes bears painted in a variety of guises by artists from Bristol and around the UK.Justin Morris, chief executive of Bristol Zoological Society, which owns and runs Wild Place Project, said: “We were thrilled to welcome the Bristol Bears here today and it’s marvellous that the Bristol Bears’ sculpture is the final one to be put in place.“It completes this wonderful trail that will thrill all of our visitors over the coming months. We hope that everyone who follows the Bristol Bears will come to see their bear sculpture and have their picture taken alongside it.” The Big Bear Sculpture Trail comes ahead of the opening of a new exhibit called Bear Wood at Wild Place Project this July. It will see European brown bears, lynx, wolves and wolverine returned to UK woodland for the first time in hundreds of years as part of a new exhibit covering seven and a half acres.Visitors to Bear Wood will be able to walk through the exhibit on a raised walkway that will wind its way through the trees. New, 180-degree, floor-to-ceiling glass viewing areas and ‘dens’ will give visitors an up-close view of the animals living alongside each other in British woodland as they would have done in years gone by.The Big Bear Sculpture Trail has been organised and managed by Bristol Zoological Society – the charity that owns and runs Wild Place Project – alongside Wild in Art – an organisation that produces popular art events which entertain, inform, enrich and leave a lasting legacy.The Big Bear Sculpture Trail will be at Wild Place Project from April 6 until September 1.

‘Impact players made the difference’ – Lam

first_imgHenry Purdy and Lewis Thiede came off the bench to score within two minutes of each other, as Pat Lam’s men scored 20 unanswered points in the second half to snatch a second away victory of the season in the Gallagher Premiership.Director of Rugby, Lam praised his side’s fightback but was less than satisfied with the first half showing.”I was frustrated from the first half – we said our purple patch would come but the first thing is we’ve got to keep the ball.”Then when we scored the message went out to score again and then we scored again. We were playing and then we kicked the ball away and they had their purple patch of attack again. “I am proud of them because at the end of the day we’ve gone away to Exeter Chiefs and won away there and gone to the second-placed team Saints and done the same.”But those are outcomes. The team that we want to be, we can’t play rugby like that if we want to set the standards higher.”We couldn’t carry on playing like we did in the first half as we turned over so much possession and you can’t play rugby like that if you want to set any form of standard.”We conceded 18 turnovers in the first half so we had to flush that effort down the toilet.”We said at half-time that we needed to be patient as our purple patch would come but even after that, we started kicking the ball away again, which made for a nervous finish.”Our impact players made a big difference and we showed what we can do as we’ve come away from the top two sides in the Premiership, Exeter and Northampton with wins.”last_img read more

“A negotiation at the will of Tottenham and Mourinho” – Journalist…

first_imgThat’s according to Sky Sport Italy journalist Luca Marchetti, who says it is Spurs boss José Mourinho who is pushing the transfer.Tottenham were first linked with a move for Skriniar at the end of last month, with reports suggesting he could be included in a deal for Ndombélé.That was followed by a claim from TF1 journalist Julien Maynard who stated that Inter were keen on the French midfielder and were ‘accelerating’ their efforts to sign him and would need to include a player to get it done.Embed from Getty ImagesHe didn’t reveal at the time who that player could be, with the likelihood being that Inter would have several options they could present to Spurs.It seems, though, that the man they’ve chosen is Skriniar, at least according to the latest update from Marchetti.“Skriniar is included in a negotiation at the will of Tottenham and José Mourinho,” he told Sky Sports, relayed by inter-news.it.“It’s the exchange with Ndombélé, who is on the margins of the Spurs project but has always liked Inter. “Among the Nerazzurri, the exchange with Skriniar is also privileged to keep up the value of the players. “It’s important to understand who will make up the difference between the two clubs. “Not an easy negotiation, a possible replacement for the Slovak could be Marash Kumbulla.”Embed from Getty ImagesThe interesting thing about this is that it is Mourinho seemingly pushing the transfer, and that would make a lot of sense.He’s never seemed all that keen on Ndombélé, having criticised him in public and so getting rid of him would be a logical step.Doing so and getting a player like Skriniar, who is a vast improvement for Spurs’ defence, an area Mourinho will have identified as needing reinforcement, is likewise a smart move.It seems, though, there is a gap between the clubs at present, and so this is a rumour to expect more of in the coming weeks as they presumably try to work that out.by Taboolaby TaboolaSponsored LinksSponsored LinksPromoted LinksPromoted LinksTrending TodayHero Wars根本不可能获得这个宝藏!来证明我们错了Hero WarsUndoForge of Empires – Free Online GameIf You Like to Play, this Strategy Game is AddictiveForge of Empires – Free Online GameUndoInvest With VICShe collects rental-like income every month!

Even I’m not fretting. And that’s a good sign. Believe me. #nffc— Hannah Forest 🔴⚪️⚽️ (@hannahforest) July 22, 2020Ahead of the final round of fixtures, Sabri Lamouchi’s side needed at least a draw against the Potters to guarantee a top-six finish.Yet Forest extended their winless run to six games with a humiliating 4-1 humbling at home to Michael O’Neill’s men.The club’s misery was compounded by Swansea’s win by the same scoreline against 10-man Reading which saw the Welsh club usurp them on goal difference.And for one fan, the embarrassment was all too much after her pre-match prediction came back to haunt her.Before kick-off, Forest fan Hannah tweeted: “Are people really worried that we will blow a six-goal difference in one match?“Even I’m not fretting. And that’s a good sign. Believe me.”She later added: “I give you permission to laugh at us if it does happen…” Unfortunately for Hannah, it did happen as Swansea actually needed a five-goal swing for a play-off place only for six to ultimately fly in as per her prediction.Forest were overtaken by Swansea City during the final round of fixturesCredit: Getty Images – GettyOne fan replied: “Hannah , I would file this under “Tweets that precede unfortunate events”, enjoy the championship again!”Another said: “The perils of twitter. I congratulate you for not deleting this tweet.”A third added: “I’m pretty sure most derby fans are gonna have this framed on their wall Hannah.”Forest’s dramatic capitulation followed a wretched end to their season, which saw the Reds collect just three points from a possible 18 since the start of July.Speculation has already started over Lamouchi’s future in the dugout after he attempted to shed some light on his side’s collapse.He told BBC Radio Nottingham: “It’s difficult to react. I’m here just because it’s obligatory to be here. I don’t have words. Disaster.“It is a disaster to lose everything in the last game at home, of course.“But to believe all the season about the play-offs and to lose and put away the play-offs like that, it’s just our fault. I don’t have more words. I’m so sorry. I’m sorry to the fans, sorry for the last few games.“One point was enough tonight, it was enough a few days ago and was enough last week and we were so close, but it was a disaster.”Liverpool lift the Premier League title after 30 year wait Travel Diary // Vietnam 2017 Source: Soccer – thesun.co.uklast_img read more
