Cumbernauld’s Arria celebrates her first anniversary

First anniversary: Arria
First anniversary: Arria

CUMBERNAULD’S very own silver lady marks a milestone in her existence.

For this week Arria celebrates one whole year overlooking the town and the busy A80.

The massive sculpture, constructed in 15 sections by artist Andy Scott, has courted her fair share of controversy - as well as the odd royal visitor.

But love her or loathe her, Arria has certainly proved to have been a talking point, and is rapidly becoming closely associated with the town she watches over.

Your News and Chronicle has a special feature on Arria, including the views of everyone from the talented sculptor who brought her into being to the ordinary man and woman in the street.
