Hi, and welcome to the website page...
I'm Dave Miles- Coordinator- Team6
I have been a fan of Patrick McGoohan for many years and I just wanted to say thank you Patrick for all the entertainment you have given me and the many millions of viewers too. What better way than to start off this wonderful accolade......
Team6 are very proud and extremely excited to announce the launch of the Project- The Patrick McGoohan/No.6 Statue Campaign.
For several months we have been working very hard to organise this amazing idea. Firstly contacting Portmeirion Trust with the initial idea then moving on to ITV who own the rights to the Tv series and finally contacting Six of One The Official Prisoner Appreciation Society who very kindly put me in touch with the McGoohan family.
Everyone is very keen to help, see the money raised and very excited at the prospect of a permanent memorial to Patrick McGoohan.
A permanent site has been agreed (In the grounds of Portmeirion Village) exact location to be discussed and agreed.
A Sculptor has been commissioned, the renowned Sean Hedges-Quinn who excels in his craft and his work is incredibly lifelike. Sean is also a big fan of The Prisoner.
The statue will be cast in bronze and will be life-size (6 foot 2 inches). Also along side the statue will be a full-size Rover (Guardian of the village) to keep an eye on No.6 (Rover will also be illuminated).
Statue Target is £90.000
There will also be a Thank you plaque featuring Major Sponsors who take up the Major Sponsor Package.
Major Sponsor Package is.....
A Special Certificate signed by Catherine McGoohan and Sean Hedges-Quinn.
Introductions to Catherine and Sean.
Your name or company's name permanently on the Thank you plaque.
