Walk of Fame
Adjacent to Tommy's statue, and alongside the 13th century Caerphilly Castle, The Society commissioned the Tommy Cooper 'Walk of Fame'
This was an excellent opportunity to mark the life of this great entertainer with a lasting memento for you, your friends and family.
The inaugural Phase of 'The Walk' was opened on April Fools Day 2005 by Councillor Harry Andrews who was Leader of the Council. He also opened 4 further phases in 2005, 2006 and two in 2007. The sixth and seventh phases were opened in 2008 and 2009 by the Council Leader, Lindsay Whittle. The 8th phase of the 'Walk of Fame' was opened on 18 February 2010, and this now brings the total pavers in place to 196. Councillor Whittle kindly opened this phase and presented certificates to the owners of the pavers and despite the snow, a good time was had by all, especially as the gathering was entertained by Fletcher Ransberry, a young Tommy Cooper impressionist who had travelled from the Midlands to be present. Fletcher and his family had in fact purchased a paver, and joined several other families who had come to collect their certificates. despite the inclement weather, the hardy throng were warmed by tea, coffee and Welsh cakes which were supplied courtesy of the Caerphilly Tourist Information Centre.
We need a minimum of 20 pavers to make a further phase financially viable. The pavers cost range from £50 for a 210mm by 105mm through to £1000 for a granit paver 420mm by 420mm. There are a number of variations between these sizes. If you are interested in purchasing a paver, please contact the society on the 'Contact Us' page and we will acknowledge your interest and contact you to discuss the size and inscription for your paver. We will then put you on the waiting list untill we receive the requisite number to proceed.
