We are urging Horsham District Council to build a lasting memorial to World Champion runner Alfie Shrubb who lived in Horsham and once raced a horse. He was hailed as 'the Greatest Runner the World had ever seen' back in the 1900s and held a host of world records. In Canada, where he lived toward the end of his eventful life, Shrubb is hailed a hero. In Horsham, most people have never heard of him. We think it is about time this changed and want a statue put up in the town centre. Please show your support by signing our petition.


This petition has been started by Commemorate Alfie Shrubb in Horsham (CASH) - a group of Shrubb fans who think it is high time he was recognised in his home town.
