FUNNY FOR MONEY: Abbots Langley mascot given Red Nose Day makeover

 Published on: 27th March 2023   |   By: Bryn Holmes   |   Category: Uncategorized

Residents of an Abbots Langley road have created their own mascot, and recently decorated him as part of fundraising efforts for Red Nose Day.

The community project on Follett Drive began around two years ago, when a bike was abandoned on the street. Instead of disposing of it or taking it to a waste centre, residents decided to do something to enrich the appearance of the area.

After restoring the bike, Sunnyside Rural Trust also came along and planted a new flowerbed around the bike, giving the road a lovely community marker. More recently, a mascot was added, a mannequin affectionally named Timmy by the locals.

Most recently, Timmy and the bike were given a Red Nose Day-themed makeover, with a red clown costume put on the mannequin to encourage residents to join in the national fundraising effort. Overall, the residents of Follett Drive raised a total of £41.16.

The plan for the future is to decorate the bike and mascot for other major events, such as Easter, the King’s coronation and Christmas.
