Colchester United Player Peter Wright’s statue unveiling and dedication service

A statue of former Colchester United striker Peter Wright was unveiled at the Layer Road site on Thursday 5th February at 12 noon.

The life-size bronze figure is the result of a collaboration between Colchester Borough Council, the site developer and Peter Wright’s family. It was designed by sculptor Mandy Pratt of Ardleigh and cast by William Hayes of Basildon, and the Hunnaball Family Funeral Group is supplying the plinth and erecting the statue.
