The people of Plymouth are marking the centenary of Nancy Astor’s election by unveiling a permanent memorial to her.

Hayley Gibbs was commissioned to design and build the statue following a public design competition in February 2019.

The campaign to raise the statue to Astor has raised over £125, 000 so far and is backed by Teresa May and other prominent MPs.
