Nancy Astor was the first female to take her seat in the Houses of Parliament.

To commemorate the centenary of this historic event, a statue will be unveiled in her constituency of Plymouth.

This project has been funded by ’sponsors’ donating money. The names of donors has been engraved into paving a a recognition of their generosity.

Here at SSC we work on a lot of these types of projects. We provide a cost effective engraving service, so the donated money can go towards the intended project. We want to highlight this one due to the illustrious list of sponsors names and to show how successful these projects can be.
