Marie selects puppy’s name

Have your say

A LARGE puppy sculpture in The Yards area of Chesterfield town centre is now known as Digby - after local traders ran a competition with shoppers to find a suitable name.

Marie Moore from Eckington came up with the winning moniker, and received a hamper of goodies from The Yard’s independent traders.

The sculpture is one of several pieces of artwork installed to improve The Yards.

Alison Swift from shop Altered Chic said: “We had a great response from the public with some terrific suggestions for names. The puppy gets lots of attention from young and old!”
