Anthony managed to get a mention in the Guardian (07/11/2020) in a piece on lockdown creativity! The journalist put out a call on Twitter asking for people to get in touch with their lockdown projects, so Anthony couldn't wait to show off his, er, magnificent creations.

Second lockdowns were announced at different times across the UK. But with each announcement, creativity flared. When Wales went into its second lockdown, Anthony Bird, the council mayor of Cwmbran, south Wales, knew exactly what he wanted to do with his extra time at home: make a cadaver-shaped buffet bar for his daughter’s Halloween party and a Hawaiian drinks bar in the garden for when the weather improves in the summer.
He said: “The first lockdown was just reactive. I was looking for things to keep me sane. We knew this second lockdown was coming, so I had time to plan it, learning from the first one. It’s reawakened something childlike in me that I haven’t felt in years.”
