    Story

    Help fund a new Memorial for the Staffordshire Regiment.

    Sgt Watchman V is the mascot of the Staffordshire Regiment and holds the Freedom of Tamworth.

    We have launched a community project to build a life size bronze statue of Sgt Watchman V as a memorial to the Staffordshire Regiment - and to honour all the mascots and handlers that have served the regiment. The statue will be placed in Tamworth castle grounds.

    Watchman is a familiar face to many people in Staffordshire and a much loved mascot. Recently crowned the "Westminster Dog of the Year", all Watchman have attracted much public attention and love over the many years of service to the Regiment.

    The project was launched at the start of the year and we are very close to our fundraising target of £10,000.

    Please help support the project and us raise the last of the funds needed. Help us build a lasting tribute to the Staffordshire Regiment and its many hardworking mascots and handlers.

    The project is supported by Staffie Central, Tamworth Borough Council and Community Together CIC.

    All funds raised will held by Community Together CIC (a not for profit community interest company) until the project is completed.

    The project has received donations from SnowDome, Staffordshire County Council, Pets at Home, Staffie Central, branches of the Staffordshire Regimental Association, Bellway Homes, Taylor Wimpy, Staffordshire Bull Terrier Rescue, Drayton Manor and many individuals.

      The clay statue has been made and a mould taken, you can see it below just before the mould was taken. We will be casting it in bronze in the next few weeks with a view to getting it installed in Tamworth in the Autumn. Thank you to everyone who donated to the campaign, you have made this possible. You can see more updates are on my Facebook page, www.facebook.com/watchmanstaffordshire

      I’m sure I speak for all Tamworth residents when I say how proud we are of all who served in our local regiment. Their mascot and all he symbolises is a most fitting memorial for our park.

      For Watchman, a true ambassador for the breed, and a true ambassador for the Regiment and the County. God Bless you Watchman.
