I felt so inspired that yesterday I signed up for the second draw!!

"Places will be allocated in four separate draws, one for each month:
1 June Places for July
1 July Places for August
1 August Places for September
1 September Places for October "

What would you do on the plinth if you got your hour?

We were discussing that very point last night at Ivanhoe Towers, Julie.

Which prompted me to enter the draw as well.

Mrs I's ideas were all based on the premise that you had to do some kind of performance, or have a visible purpose.

My thoughts were more based around just enjoying the hour of free time, the space up on the plinth, and the views. (And my desire to emulate Jill Archer, who must surely get awarded a place in the next draw. Especially since A. Gormley is coming to the Ambridge village fete this weekend.)

I take it you're already entered in the draw yourself?

...if you press it, they will come.

I think you might need to get in there quick. If I was reading it properly, the slots currently up for lotto were at/towards the end of the run. It's only 100 days, after all, so I'd not be surprised if they wanted to get all the slot-allocation done quickly.

I wonder whether there's anywhere in SE1 (?the top of a very tall building somewhere near Westminster Bridge, possibly?) where you can see the plinth from? One could go up on the plinth and "broadcast" the news hot from Traf Square to the residents of SE1 via flags or mirrors. I can just imagine it: "Not much happening. Lots of pigeons and tourists. Just remembered why I never come here."

...if you press it, they will come.

Ivanhoe, could you encapsulate in one hour the skill;dedication; of a cider maker! or perhaps a bar stool and a jug of scrumpy.....:-)

Gerat idea Jan. (Although I reckon I'd be safer with a deckchair than a barstool ;0))

...if you press it, they will come.
