Granite is a Chinese takeaway
Sir – In the Galloway News dated August 10, 2017, there is a Reader’s Picture of theWeek of Adamson Square in Creetown.
The caption states“Adamson Square in Creetown, with a feature hewn from local granite by the renowned sculptor Hideo Futura”.
I used to work for Dumfries and Galloway Council and managed the team that carried out the design and supervision of the refurbishment of Adamson Square.
None of the granite used in the refurbishment was local as it was significantly more cost effective to quarry the granite in China, dress it there and transport it halfway round the world!
Sadly Hideo died several years ago.
