Richard with Peacocks from Avant Garden

Beale Park Wildlife Park & Gardens, at Lower Basildon in Berkshire, recently took delivery of three fine cast bronze statues, two peacock statues and one parrot statue, all supplied by Avant-Garden based in Guernsey.

Having just celebrated the Park’s 60th birthday, these three statues were a perfect way to commemorate this anniversary and a legacy for all to enjoy for years to come.

The service we received from Nick Martel, owner of Avant-Garden, was brilliant, with Nick’s wealth of knowledge he helped the Park from start to finish.

We can’t recommend them highly enough!

“We are very pleased with him, he is very well cast with fantastic attention to detail….he was delivered safely and very well packed!”

Dear Nick,
I have attached a couple of photos of Patrick the Donkey.

We are very pleased with him, he is very well cast with fantastic attention to detail.

When we first installed him the cows in the field surrounding our garden showed great interest in him!

He was delivered safely and very well packed!

Maybe next year we will buy a female to keep him company?

Best wishes
Ken

DearNick,

Here are the photos of’ ‘The Donk’ as he is known!!

Now we live in our ‘Chalet Bung’ instead of the old farmhouse.

He is perfect and needs no mucking out or feeding, and it makes us feel as if we have a paddock again.

My husband and I have a French restaurant in Guernsey, Chael Islands. We’ve always been very keen on Nick’s choices of furniture and accessories. We bought our frog King from his “Avant Garden” boutique about 10 years ago already. Our sculpture has a pride of place on our front reception counter. All the women are kissing him and getting selfies as well!!
Best Regards,

Hi Nick,

Just a short mail to confirm that the Bronze Heron was received in a timely fashion and in excellent condition. We have been working very hard with landscaping/preparation of site for the Heron, which is now in situ and a delight to look at. It has proved to be a great addition to our property and we are delighted.

We will “keep an eye” on your website in case something else may be of interest in the future.

Kind regards
