GC1B45F - Peaceful activism can pay off!
Too bad the timing is that the cache had to be temporarily disabled.
The years of campaigning have paid off. But sadly it looks like the poor lamp gets no reprieve.
Will probably archive Free the Bench as it has served its purpose and have planned a new cache to celebrate justice restored!
Quote: " This summer, the bench became the subject of a series of “interbenchions,” where guerilla artists swept in undetected and dressed up the bench and surrounding area. The first time, the anonymous public art enthusiasts injected some comfort, adding throw pillows, blankets, and tables with flowers and books to the area.
Other displays followed, such as a Christmas in July display, complete with a tree, faux chimney and gifts, and a pale green Benchasauraus followed soon after (check www.interbenchion.blogspot.com).
But now the incarcerated two-sided bench is about to be sprung from its jail – due to its good behaviour – and will soon be relocated.
Before that happens, however, the slatted seating is getting one last makeover.
On Monday (Oct. 17), the public is invited to freshen up the bench with a splash of colour and creativity. The City of Surrey is providing paint and brushes from 2-5:30 p.m."
Thanks to everyone who cached it and cared....
