Where is J.T. Thompson ?

This gentleman was born on the 10th August 1821 in Northumberland England-he went on to become a great explorer, writer and surveyor ! This statue has been erected in his honour but can anyone tell me where ? A clue ? Our very own Viv sent this picture in and yes-he is still on the run in New Zealand !
Oh ! Great news ! Remember the motor bike that was donated to us to sell ? hubby sold it today making £500.00 for the Motor Neurone Disease Association ! Thank you to Gwynnie and Mal for being so very kind and generous and donating it to us in the first place ! hugs to you both xx

Update on Andrew- we visited him in hospital this evening - when we arrived it was lovely to see his hospital room packed full of people,Mike Peters and fellow band members from the Alarm- and friends were all there visiting him- I can`t tell you how much of a boost it gave him -what a wonderful rowdy lot they all were ! A lovely bunch of guys ! nice to see Andrew smiling again-hopefully he should be going home on Wednesday !

I didn't even know that was a statue when I saw the photo! Very life-like. Glad to hear that Andrew is feeling a little better.

good to hear Andrew is feeling a bit better. That is good you were able to raise all that money from such a generous donation.

For once I had no idea where that statue was.

Jan, It's great to have Viv back, but I have no idea where he is.?
Fabulous news about the motor bike, it was very generous of Gwynnie and Mal,we were with Andrew when Jan told him and he was thrilled.
We arrived when Mike and the Alarm were visiting it was amazing I really don't thing ward 4 has ever seen anything like it. All the nursing staff were excited and finding excuses to check on Andrew or walk passed his door very slowly glancing in smiling. We have decided to put a star on his door. Its what sisters do.
love Ann xx
