Introduction from Sebastian Lewis, Founder of the Stanley Baldwin Campaign
"Whilst at the moment the support for a Statue of Stanley Baldwin is growing with our online petition, there is still plenty of work to do and our campaign is still a long way from finishing.
I wrote to my local newspaper, the Shuttle earlier last year asking whether it was time for a statue of Stanley Baldwin, the three times Prime Minister from Bewdley in the Wyre Forest, and the response was amazing! There are always new debates surrounding Stanley Baldwin's legacy, and even where to place a statue for the three time Prime Minister. People even want to debate the cost of the statue.
As Bewdley and neighbouring town of Stourport-On-Severn debate over his family roots, period of residency and influence, we are looking for more support all of the time and we are raising awareness amongst the citizens of the Wyre Forest and beyond.
We hope that regardless of your political affiliation, that you will join us in this cause to commend a local citizen who went on to become Prime Minister, taking the highest office in the land." - Seb
