The Welcome Home Statue, Fleetwood
The Welcome Home Statue was designed and Sculpted by Anita Lafford. It was sponsored by The Lofthouse Company who make the famous Fisherman's Friends Lozenges.

The statue depicts a mother with her two young children and pet dog welcoming their loved ones on their return from deep-sea fishing trips (which lasted up to three weeks). It was considered unlucky to wave them off at the start of the trip.
A nearby plaque (SD3348 : Welcome Home (plaque)) gives further details.
