Free the Crumlin Muppet!

Sad to see it depart from its 'home' but I suppose it does make more sense to have it preserved somewhere people can see it.  And will probably be kept in better condition.

Sad to see her moved from her resting place, will always remember the noise of the helicopter wirring over the tops of the hedges in the local area, or hedge hopping as it was called lol.
