AS Bristol counts down to the Shaun the Sheep extravaganza this summer, Bishopston Voice can reveal that one of the 60 sculptures on the trail will be coming to Westbury Park.

Organisers say details of the locations are being finalised, but we understand that a likely spot for the decorated 5ft Aardman character is in Coldharbour Road.

The Shaun in the City trail will run from July 6 to August 31. Like the Gromit Unleashed trail in 2013, it will raise money for sick children. This time the initiative also includes a second trail of 60 sculptures in London.

Selected artists - including Jenny Urquhart and Emily Ketteringham from Coldharbour Gallery - are now hard at work on their designs for the sculptures.

The first six went on show last summer when the event was announced.

Hazel Burville, owner of Coldharbour Framery and Gallery, said: "We are very excited about Shaun coming to the area and we look forward to revealing more details in due course."

At the end of Shaun in the City, the Bristol sculptures will be auctioned in aid of Wallace and Gromit's Grand Appeal, which supports Bristol Children's Hospital.
