LORD Archer may soon be a permanent fixture in Weston.A group from Bonks Hill, in Hertfordshire, has asked Weston Town Council to have a bronze statue of the writer and former politician in the town.The idea is being considered by the mayor's think tank committee which is also discussing plans to have statues of legendary Weston residents past and present around the town.Lord Archer was made a life peer in 1992 and became Baron Archer of Weston, on the advice of the then Prime Minister John Major.Mayor John Ley-Morgan said: "Having a statue erected of someone still alive has to be discussed at length. We are also not sure where the funding for the statue would come from and if the group has any connection with Weston."We are talking about possibly having sculptures of famous Weston sons and daughters erected, such as Alfred Leete or John Cleese. It would be a great way of celebrating their achievements.
