The Balancing Act pencils sculpture on Somme Parade will get a sharpen.

On Monday the pencils on the walkway will be removed by GMS Property Services and Emmetts Civil Construction for maintenance.

The pencils will be taken to Rob O'Keeffe Joinery to sharpen the existing wooden points, which have rotted and need replacement.

Once sharp again, the pencils will get a touch up from Colour Code Auto Painters.

The work is likely to take two to three weeks.
