Story

SSOHC is bringing a vibrant UNDER THE SEA theme to Hertford’s Parliament Square.

Some of the incredible displays include:

A stunning coral reef round the edge of the War Memorial, adorned with 2 Mermaids (Sam Phire & Calypso) and a Merman (Herman the Merman), an amazing variety of corals and hidden sea creatures

A pod of Dolphins leaping through the waves

A flock of flying fish

Endangered sea species to highlight the need for ocean conservation intertwined around the cycle racks, including Manta ray, Hammerhead shark, Beluga whale, Blue whale, Galapagos penguin with baby, Whale shark with baby, Hectors dolphin, Sea turtle and Florida manatee

A Shipwreck, with wreckage strewn over 6 bollards and including the figurehead, wheel, sails, anchor, treasure and of course a skull and crossbones

The 2 stone benches in Parliament Square have been adorned with a Giant Crab (Crispin Crab) and a Giant Octopus (Malcolm Octopus) creating fun photo opportunities

5 cycle bollards have been transformed into a herd of seahorses

7 trees around Parliament Square have been magically conjured into sea scenes, with masses of sea and seaweed garlands and each tree depicting different sea life some real, some imaginary: Sharks, Jellyfish, Turtles, Puffer fish, Cuttlefish, Moorish Idol fish, Clown fish, Basslets, Stripey fish, Surgeon fish, Butterfly fish and Rainbow fish

The 8th tree is a fresh water river in South America and is full of Piranhas!!
