The Manchester Marathon has been in touch and it looks like they are going to put the Frank Sidebottom Statue down as a landmark.
This will take place on Sunday 6th April. This is where we need your help.
We have been asked to get Frank Fans to be at the Statue to cheer along the Marathon runners, so looking for as many people as possible.Can you wear fancy dress? Do you have a Frank Head, could Franks Army be united ?
A great chance to keep Franks name going, and help out with the 2014 Manchester Marathon.
Why not make your very own paper mache head? Now is the time to start work if you are going to
Do we have any people that can play live music? Anyone fancy doing a PA system to cheer the runners as they pass through Timperley in front of the Frank Sidebottom Statue

Did Timperley have a moment of anarchy when the statue was unveiled? Well as this videi shows, the police had to shut the roads!
We did it, at 11.37am on sunday 20 october 2013 a life size bronze statue of the one and only frank Sidebottom was unveiled to the public.
To every single person that has taken part in this journey, thank you.
We also handed over a cheque to marie curie for £1,137.00 and on the day they also collected a massive £1,215.83

|Yes we really did it, a life size bronze statue of Frank Sidebottom is in Timperley|
Our aim was to always have some monies over for a cancer charity, and we are more than chuffed to have done this mission.
So what next? Its early at the moment to comment, but soon a friends of the frank Sidebottom statue group will be set up, and talk of an annual get-together and small fund raiser for marie curie are already been talked about.
We hope that everyone is happy with the result, and once last time, thanks to everyone for your love of frank, the one and only son of Timperley.
