Artists Alisha Miller and Joanne Lole were at the forefront of a "Sunflower Trail" community project, which was being supported by Mary Ann Evans Hospice. It featured special pieces of sunflower artwork, with the aim of attracting more shoppers and boosting business, as part of Warwickshire County Council's Operation Footfall scheme. The six-foot high sculptures have been designed and manufactured in Nuneaton by the Go See Team, with help from local craftsmen Ian Wills and Alan Fox and Subcon Laser Cutting's general manager Tom Mongan and IT manager Ian Jesson. This resulted in production of an additional ten sculptures so the trail included around 30 in total." Joanne added: "We would like to say a big thank you for the extremely positive response from Operation Footfall, the community, town centre venues and especially Mary Ann Evans Hospice, who gave the project enormous support and ensured its success." Alisha said: "We were really pleased to have been able to use local floral sculptures which had been created to brighten Nuneaton town centre and raise awareness of a local charity.
