Moderation reason: Thank you for submitting and sharing your idea – it’s something we’ll consider in the future. During our Green Capital Year in 2015, and following on from the success of WOW Gorillas and the Grommits in 2014, Bristol will be hosting an outdoor trail of Aardman’s Shaun the Sheep. Look out for it across Bristol and beyond...
All Bristol loved the Gromits (and the gorillas before them). Next time, how about asking companies to commission artists to design benches to be placed on as many hills in Bristol as possible where people walk and old/ sick/ tired people need to rest to continue being able to get out on foot? Could be both useful and decorative/ amusing.

Why the contribution is important
Living on a hilly street in Clifton, I used to observe a 92 year old man walking up Hensmans Hill twice a day. He might have gone on longer had there been a bench half way up. It eventually proved too far for him to get to the top without a place to rest.
Maybe it would take a few years to get enough all over Bristol but they could be a permanent attraction rather than the brief one of the much loved Gromits and could help keep residents on the move.
